When one of my colleagues is accessing Outlook Web Access from IE, he frequently gets an error reported: "Outlook Web Access has encountered a Web browsing error".

The error report includes the following:

Message: Automation server can't create object


Line: 85

Any idea as to what might be causing such a problem? The only solution suggested so far is "Reinstall Windows", which he'd rather avoid.
