how to solve the object expected error in IE

Hi all I don't know if I am in the right forum, I hope that someone can help me.
I am not a programer, my problem is when I open a website like facebook or howstuffworks the page don't open correctly or it open but with error on page.
I double click on the explamation mark, they said "object expected" in different line but the same char and code. also not only object expected I face, there is also "unterminated string constant" "object doesn't support this property or method"
I don't think that the problem is from the page itself because facebook or howstuffworks have proffesional programers, in additions of that, these pages open correctly on my friend laptop.
I am using IE6 - XP sp2.
plz does someone have the solution or have an idea about the problem???

Well, my first tip is to get rid of Internet Explorer and switch to Firefox. It will be much faster and nicer, and it supports what we call "standards", that every browser besides IE follows for our coding to be consistent for every browser.

Now, for the errors. These are all JavaScript errors, and although they are professional programmers, they are inevitable. Google has 50 errors, Digg has 70 errors, etc. Microsoft decided to be stupid and throw the errors in users' faces...

Just ignore them and use Firefox, because frankly, Internet Explorer Sucks.

In the IE menubar, click Tools. then Internet Options, then Advanced.

Scroll down till you see a check box with the label, 'disable script debugging'.
Make sure that one IS checked.

The next one (or somewhere near it), that says 'Notify about every script error' should NOT be checked.

That is how your friend's computer is set up, and why he doesn't get any warnings.

Basically, all you have to do is go to Tools on your interenet explorer page, then interenet options. Then go to advanced and click on "restore defaults". Press apply then OK and you should be done.
