Boot up with "Client Script, Line 18: attempt call a nil value"

I recently installed a new computer with Windows 8 and the following week
I'm seeing on boot up the following message "Client Script, Line 18: attempt call a nil value"
I click OK and it goes away until next boot up.

Need help in resolving this issue.

I would run msconfig and start unchecking startup at a time..then reboot to see if the message goes away

If this is a standalone PC I would do as suggested, check msconfig but also run a bootup scan, either boot from a USB drive and ran a virus scan or if your virus software has it schedule a boot time scan so you PC can be scanned before Windows loads.

Hi Cris,
I was able to resolve issue.  Turned out the scanner and the its startup software was not compatible with Windows 8.
Thanks for your help
What scanner was not compatible, we only have VIPRE and Chrome in our startup items and we get this error ?
