Strange error message when I open an Internet site

Everytime I open an internet site I get a box with the following dialogue:

Line 11
Char 56
Error Object does not support this properly or method
Code  0
URL   http/
sourceid = navclient&ie=UTF


I use a Toshiba Satellite laptop and have Windows 7.

The problem is in the start page of your web browser. For some reason it’s trying to open a Google search page, although the part of the link that reads navclient indicates it may have something to do with Norton Antivirus.
Changing the browser start page is relatively easy, here’s the instructions for changing the three most popular browsers;
Internet Explorer
In Microsoft IE, open the browser, click the Tools menu, choose Internet Options and under the General tab you’ll find a box named Home Page. Delete anything in that box, click OK and Apply.
Mozilla Firefox
For Firefox, click the Tools menu, select Options and in the General section click the Restore to Default button. Click OK and Apply.
Google Chrome
Unlike the other two browsers, Chrome doesn’t have a menu bar so click the wrench (spanner) icon in the top right hand corner. Select Options and in the Basics tab click the Open the home page radio button in the On Startup section. Click Close.
That should clear the problem however it could be a Norton Anti Virus setting is causing this, if you are no longer using the program we’d recommend removing Norton as we discuss in Norton Antivirus will not uninstall.
Page hijacking, which is what this problem is sometimes called, is also a common problem when you have a malware, or virus, infection. We’d also recommend checking your computer for Trojans.
