>>cacheLength:10,
 

get rid of the trailing comman after the 10. IE treats that as a syntax error and will halt any more js execution.
$("#example").autocomplete('autocomplete.asp',
{ minChars:2,  
cacheLength:10
             
});

I am using IE7 and I am NOT seeing any errors after your update. How are you getting these errors? Are you sure you are not looking at a cached page?

Well, it was NOT working on IE7 before. After my suggested change it works now. So there's nothing else for me to fix!!!

On another note ( and this is my last post on this matter since what follows is something completely different from your original problem ), on your problem description, this looks odd:
 Embedded Web Browser from: http://bsalsa.com/;

I don't know if that is the reason why you are experiencing something different. Not sure if this applies to you:

But like I said, it now works on IE7 and I suspect that it would work in a "normal" IE8 browser configuration as well.

If you look at my original message i said IE generally not IE7  and if you look at my error description is writes User Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 8.0;
I removed the user agent and test from another PC still doesn't work in IE8
I'll wait another 10 hours maybe someone want to split the points with you and give me a solution for IE8 too
Thank you

>>If you look at my original message i said IE generally not IE7
I wasn't suggesting you to "publish" your page just for IE7 or lower. I know you wanted a "general" solution - hence the trailing comma fix. That was problem that IE (in general) can't handle. What I meant was that since I don't have IE8  I can't test/debug any further.

On another note, this same problem was reported here:

The author's response (immediately after the comment above) was to download the newer version.
