Run-time error '-2147467259(80004005)': Method 'Document' of object 'IWebBrowser2' failed

My VBA was working fine on my personal laptop but now its not working on any system.
Everytime i am getting same error "Run-time error '-2147467259(80004005)': Method 'Document' of object 'IWebBrowser2' failed". When i click on Debug, it stops on following code line:

IE.Document.getElementById("login-form-username").Value = EditUN.Text 'Enter your username here

Below is the complete code:

Private Sub StartJira_Click()

'Open IE and hit JIRA Pearson Url
Set IE = CreateObject("InternetExplorer.Application")
IE.Silent = True
IE.Visible = True
IE.navigate UrlSelect.Value



IE.Document.getElementById("login-form-username").Value = EditUN.Text 'Enter your username here
IE.Document.getElementById("login-form-password").Value = EditPW.Text 'Enter your password here
IE.Document.getElementById("login").Click 'Hit login button

Application.Wait (Now + TimeValue("0:00:30")) 'Wait

Dim X As Integer, Y As Integer

'Set numrows = number of rows of data.
NumRows = Range("A2", Range("A2").End(xlDown)).Rows.Count
Y = NumRows + 1
'Select cell A2, *first line of data*.
'Establish "For" loop to loop "numrows" number of times.
For X = 2 To Y

Set objCollection = IE.Document.getElementByTagName("input")
i = 0
While i < objCollection.Length
If objCollection(i).Name = "searchString" Then

'Set text for search
objCollection(i).Value = Cells(X, 1).Value

If objCollection(i).Type = "submit" And _
objCollection(i).Name = "" Then

' "Search" button is found
Set objElement = objCollection(i)

End If
End If
i = i + 1
objElement.Click ' click button to search

Application.Wait (Now + TimeValue("0:00:15")) 'Wait for 15 seconds

IE.Document.getElementById("comment-issue").Click 'click button to add comment
IE.Document.getElementById("comment").Value = Cells(X, 2).Value

Set objElement = Nothing
Set objCollection = Nothing ' Clear search string

ActiveCell.Offset(1, 0).Select

End Sub

Please Help:(

The reason was session with IE got disconnected. Used following snippet after navigating to desired URL, helped me to get rid of the error:
Dim sh
 Dim eachIE As Object
  Set sh = New Shell32.Shell
  For Each eachIE In sh.Windows
    If InStr(1, eachIE.LocationURL, UrlSelect.Value) Then
      Set IE = eachIE
      'IE.Visible = False  'This is here because in some environments, the new process defaults to Visible.
      Exit Do
      End If
    Next eachIE
Set eachIE = Nothing
Set sh = Nothing
