I keep seeing the "Error On Page" showing up on the bottom left hand corner of the websites

I keep seeing the "Error On Page" showing up on the bottom left hand corner of the website on many websites and can't even open certain webpages which I otherwise could open the page if I use another computer.   I am using Windows 7 Home 64 Bit and internet explorer 8 but still get that error message.  Can someone tell me how to fix it and what's the problem?  I also can't seem to be able to open a link to download.
