Permission denied - Internet Explorer script error when printing from Outlook - preview.js

Getting this message sometimes when printing from Outlook 2003 SP3:

Windows XP Pro SP3 - Office 2003 SP3 - Internet Explorer 8

Trying to print an email with an attachment from Outlook - The attachment in this case is an excel spreadsheet - I do not get any errors when I open this file in excel or drag and drop it into IE to open it.  I Receive this error message every time.  

Internet Explorer Script Error

Line: 2570
Char: 1
Error: Permission denied
Code: 0
URL: res://ieframe.dll/preview.js

After clicking Yes to continue running scripts - nothing prints - error just goes away.

This question has already been posed and the Microsoft article proposed as the "solution" involves removing XP SP3 and then removing IE8.  This is not an acceptable solution,  is there a better fix/patch that can be installed?  Or settings changed in IE8 that make this error go away?

In IE8 -> Tools -> Internet Options -> Advanced -> Check the options to disable script debugging and errors. Some of these errors are inconsequential and do not need to be reported.

Also, SP3 for XP needs a lot of memory or you will get some strange errors. Do you have at least 1Gb of ram on your machine?

Have tried both suggestions, but users still reporting problems.
I'm getting this exact same problem, and neither of the suggestions have worked for us either.

If not solved then try to reinstall/ Repair Internet Explorer version8.0

I also have this problem with more XP/OF2003 and IE8 combinations. The options mentioned above do not solve the problem.

It took some searching, but I found a solution that works. All you have to do is copy what's below and paste it in notepad and save as .bat. Close out of Internet Explorer and Outlook before you run the script. Should work without needing a restart.

regsvr32 ole32.dll
regsvr32 oleaut32.dll
regsvr32 actxprxy.dll

this worked!
