when navigating through a website on one particular computer, an error message pops up.  This error message does not appear on any other computers accessing the same website.  The error appears to be browser related.  The machine is running windows 7 pro, IE8 which was already installed on the pc.  I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the browser, reinstalling .net framework, but issue persists.   Picture of error is attached.  Any help would be appreciated.

that's a server side error so the problem isn't really on the client machine (though it may be sending some corrupt data this shouldn't create such a serious exception on the server).

i agree with daftsod - upgrade, IE8 is appalling. better yet go to chrome or firefox.

perhaps the other machines don't cause that error because they have something cached - try clearing the cache on one of the others then hit that server again. like most every feature in ie8 clearing the cache doesn't work properly. either:

1. use the developer tools to clear the cache (F12 > clear browser cache)
2. delete the "tempporary internet files" from the file system
3. clear the cache using fiddler
