“Message: Object doesn't support this property or method” when tried to visit MSN.com in Internet Explorer

Original title: MSN.com Redirects to Bing

Hello,

I was wondering if someone could help me with this problem.  Since 01/08/2011, I've been having a problem with msn.com  When I try to access the website, it load and automatically redirects me to bing.com  If I disable scripts on the site, it doesn't redirect, but I also cannot access all of the sites features.

I've ran a scan with Norton Internet Security, Malwarebytes, Spyhunter, and Spybot Search and Destroy.  I've unistalled and reinstalled Java.  I've cleaned and defraged my registry and did a system restore to before the problem occurred, but it still no luck.

I'm not experiencing problems with any other websites, and my computer seems to be the only afflicted within my household.  Firefox is my default browser, but the problem also occurs in Internet Explorer 8.

IE gives me this error message:

Webpage error details

User Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 8.0; Windows NT 6.0; Trident/4.0; SLCC1; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; Media Center PC 5.0; .NET CLR 3.5.30729; .NET CLR 3.0.30729; InfoPath.2; .NET4.0C)

Any help would be greatly appreciated.  I prefer MSN over Yahoo, and I really don't want to change my homepage.  I'm using Vista Home Premium, Service Pack 2.

Hi notaboy,

 

This problem may occur for one or more of the following reasons:

 

  • A problem in the HTML source code of the Web page.
  • Active scripting, ActiveX controls, or Java programs are blocked on your computer or on the network. Internet Explorer or another program, such as antivirus programs or firewalls, can be configured to block Active scripting, ActiveX controls, or Java programs.
  • Antivirus software is configured to scan your "Temporary Internet Files" or "Downloaded Program Files" folders.
  • The scripting engine on your computer is corrupted or outdated.
  • Internet-related folders on your computer are corrupted.
  • Your video card drivers are corrupted or outdated.
  • The DirectX component on your computer is corrupted or outdated.
