    Internet Explorer Script Error


      I am trying to install the most recent version of Adobe Reader onto a Windows XP SP3 computer with Internet Explorer 8.  I am able to download just fine, but I run into a problem during the installation when I get to the part where it tries to retrieve the install.  From what I can tell, instead of downloading the actual installation file it's as if I'm downloading something that handle the download of the actual installation file (like a download manager).  Anyway, no matter where I download from and no matter whether I save first or run without saving I get the same Internet Explorer Script Error.  It looks something like this:


      An error has occurred in the script on this page.

      Line: 1

      Char: 9914

      Error: Object expected

      Code: 0



      Do you want to continue running scripts on this page?

      Yes No


      I have tried everything I can think of.  I don't know if some random Internet Explorer setting is interfering with the install or if it's something else.  Also, whether I hit Yes or No, nothing happens.  I have only tried downloading from the Adobe website and have not tried using third party websites.


      Please help.
