Why do I keep getting a IE Script error?

Question

IE Script Error:

I have reviewed the informaiton on your website regarding the IE Script Error. The response (http://www.computerproblems.com/questions/question.cfm?id=7032) didn't seem to provide a solution but only a "band aid", or temporary fix. What causes these errors and what do I need to do to rid myself and users of my PC of them? I assume the problem is on my end considering I get the error no matter which website from which I am trying to print. If you need more information please contact me and I can send a print screen.
