Symptom: "Error has occurred while initializing zimlet Comcast search" When trying to access their e-mai.
Diagnosis: Known issue is with IE 8 or 9, and has an add on "Premium Play Codec-c" installed in IE
Solution: Uninstalling this add-on should resolve this issue. If the issue continues please reinstall IE8 (IE9 default installation includes this add-on, so while installing IE9 the user has to choose Custom installation and avoid this add-on).

You can start by deleting your browsing history and rep penning Internet explorer. Also you can try using a different browser (safari, chrome or Firefox). The final thing to try would be deleting Comcast constant guard software as this causes the error you are getting. I hope this helps.
