Hey everyone,

When troubleshooting any iGoogle issue, your best resource is this help article below. Often times you just need to clear your cache and cookies to resolve a problem. Let me know if you need more information after visiting the site!

Cheers,
Kelly

Hi Have cleared my cache and cookies but still get the same problem. Also when you type in the search box auto drop down list does not show. When I sign out of igoogle and search on basic Google page auto drop list shows.

I've had the same problem for the past few days - have just deleted the gadgets on my igoogle homepage & the issue has been resolved (if you delete each gadget one by one & reload the page after each deletion you will identify which gadget was causing the problem ... in my case it was a brainteaser game)
Hope that helps :-)

Well done tmch711 . I have deleted brainteaser and problem solved, although search box auto complete still does not work but does on standard Google search page. Poor show from Google employee. Should have shown more interest in rectifiying problem.

@mincer - so, you're now able to see your gadgets, but autocomplete is not triggering...? Which browser and operating system are you using?

@ Kelly F. I'm using exploror 9 and Windows 7. Did not have auto complete problem before the object error box problem. If I go to standard Google and search autocomplete work just not in iGoogle.

Kelly F.  I was the original questioner about the object error message.  I have tried all the suggestions other than wiping out all my passwords, etc.  I emptied the cookies, etc.  This started when IE updated me to IE9.  Now, when I open my iGoogle homepage, initially all is well.  Then, it asks about the content ... do I want all content or just secure content.  When I say I want all of it, that is when the object error comes on the screen.  It says it is a message from the webpage.  Previously, I have tried to find a way to bypass IE9's secure content question ... to no avail.  If I don't get all the the content then half my iGoogle homepage is empty. 

 

If I have to remove all the gadgets and start over I will but this is just absurd that it is becoming so complicated.

 

Thank you.

Hey everyone. I've had the "Object Error" on my igoogle homepage since 5/27. (Using ie9). After reading posts here I deleted the "Wikipedia search" gadget that I've had for a year or so...and now there's no "Object Error" anymore. You just have to find the reight one I guess. Thanks for the help!

  I don't like nagging almost petty problems with software. The only thing I dislike more, is the developer or a support tech blowin' people off.
  Rule Number  One: If its your code, support it even if it means pulling the application until the bugger's fixed.
  Rule Number  Two: If you get enough complaints, safely assume there are more unspoken. Fix it.
  Rule Number  Three: Just because Microsoft's development model disguises betas as RTMs, doesn't mean is an acceptable practice.
  Rule Number  Four: LOOP

I deleted the brain tuner gadget that I had had for quite a while and the object error message went away.

Ditto on the Brain Tuner Gadget for me.  Thanks for the tip everyone!

hallelujiah!!! I got rid of Game of the Day and Brain Tuner.  It appears that the combination of IE9 and  iGoogle cannot tolerate some of the game gadgets. I wish I could find a browser that I really liked.  Each one has flaws that make IE9 the least trouble.  I really like Google Chrome, but it won't allow the Norton tool bar.  Firefox and Opera had some other flaws  ... I can't remember now.  I tried them all.  I liked IE8 better because I didn't have to tell it to allow all content every time I open my iGoogle home page. 
 
What browsers do you folks out there like?

I was getting the "object error" popup and had to "OK" it for all of my homepage to fill in. First, I cleared my cookies and history. No change. I then removed the last gadget I added. Wait for it! Wikipedia! Problem solved. Thank you all. Now I have a question for all of you. I have two Gmail accounts and recently set one up to work through MS Outlook 2010. It's great except I'm annoyed by all of my sent emails showing to have been sent twice even though the recipients are only getting one.

I have been having the problem of 'object error' box. Deleting Brain Tuner did the trick. Back to normal now.

Deleting the wikipedia gadget solved the problem for me.

I, too, had the "Object error" pop-up everytime I launched my Google Chrome. I deleted the Wikipedia gadget, and, voila, error message gone. Thanks to all who responded prior to this post. Fortunately I didn't have Brain Tuner gadget installed, and, considering what I've just read, I'm steering clear of it. I would suggest to anyone still having this problem, delete Wikipedia first, and if the problem still exists, delete Brain Tuner, also. If there are any other gadgets that trigger this "Object error" warning, please post your discoveries here. I can't believe of all the gadget add-ons, these are the only two that are causing this to occur.

And here it is, March 2012 and by sheer prayer, and a lot of searching, trial & error, I found this site.  IT IS STILL THE WIKIPEDIA gadget!  I hope others reported the corrupted gadget to Goggle, although I can understand why after all the frustration, they might have opted not to have done so.  I'm going there right now to try to keep others from this angst.  Thanks for the help.

I keep getting the same "object error" notice when I open a link or pop-up within a web page. It freezes whatever page I'm on and I have to log off and then sign in again. I don't have Wikipedia on the computer. Any suggestions, I've tried everything. Help!
