Default Script query

Having solved the problem with my relations computer, I now have a problem of my own.

I keep getting a message appear on my screen as follows:-
"Stop running this script? A script on this page is causing your web browser to run slowly. If it continues to run, your computer might become unresponsive"

Anyone have any ideas how I can get rid of this message and to stop it re-appearing?

Many thanks.

Hi again, Bluenose!

Good luck! Here's a bit more information: 'scripts' are bits of interactive code (i.e. they cause something to happen on the web page), and if they're taking too much time to run, browsers prompt the user to decide whether they would like to continue running the slow script or cancel it. The error is the coder's fault; not the fault of your computer!

Here's something else to try:

Internet Explorer > Tools > Internet Options > Advanced tab (far right) > Browsing > tick the boxes for 'Disable script debugging (Internet Explorer)' and 'Disable script debugging (Other)'.

Let us know what happens!

Hello again, Thank you for being so helpful with this problem. Interestingly, the two options that you have mentioned are already ticked on my setup, it would appear from that that they don't work or are only working with some scripts.
