Strange message

Can someone help a newbie?
I was online when a small panel headed Microsoft Internet Explorer appeared on my screen. The message below was "object expected @ 24" Anyone know what this means? I pressed OK and it disappeared. I ran Mcafee but found no virus.
I use Windows 98SE. Any comments would be appreciated.
Thanks!
Andrew

never click ok if its something you are unsure of.better to ctrl+alt+delete applications and end task it.

could be script debugging is enabled mabye.

check tools/internet options/advanced and tick "disable script debugging"

Thanks to huggyg71, I checked and script debugging is disabled.
I will take your advice on end tasking in future.
Thanks!
