---------------------------------------------------
A couple of days ago users began receiving the above error (more details below) when going to the SharePoint 'home' or landing page (all other pages/sites and even this sites libraries and lists do not throw this error). Also administrators and myself do not get this error so initially thought this may be something to do with security or permissions. I have checked this to the best of my ability but do not see anything out of place. I have scoured the net and come up empty handed...

Hi,
it seems that a web part from intranetfactory is causing this error.
To work around this issue, you might want to open the page in IE and add the url parameter
?contents=1
This will open the web part maintenance page, where you can delete this web part.

As I have no experience with that product I can not solve your issue (which caused the error) but perhaps the company who created the web part might be able to support you.

Thanks! That did it.....not sure why this web part broke all of a sudden as I have not changed it since it was installed many months ago but will contact the company as you suggest.

Cheers
