BaldNut---There usually is not much you, as the viewer of the website, can do.  The coder of the website has created code that is not compatibile with IE6.  Is there an OK button to click on the message?  What happens if you do?
Other than that, you could install the latest MS jscript http://blogs.msdn.com/jscript/archive/2007/08/12/windows-script-5-7-released-for-windows-2000-windows-xp-and-windows-2003-server.aspx
but if that does not help, I suspect as mentioned there is not much you can do, other than to use one of the later versions of IE or another browser.

Hi, I look after the website, and the problem has happened on another xcart site that i had developed for me last year, there is a solution because the programmer who built the other site fixed identical problem last year.

But he has moved and I no longer have contact details for him.

BaldNut-  --"there is a solution because the programmer who built the other site fixed identical problem last year."
As a viewer there is not much you can do.  You will probably have to hire another programmer.  
However, maybe somebody else reading this thread will be willing to read the source code and tell you what is needed for IE6.  That is not something I can do.
Here are some do-it-yourself ideas

P.S.  More out of curiosity than anything else, what happens when you click OK on the error message window?

Hi JC,

When you click the comment box, it brings you to a page can not be displayed page, but then if you reload the page it goes straight in without a problem, which is wierd and also same problem as last year.

Thanks for your input, ill check out the validation now.
