Has anyone had issues with Long Running Script messages - Windows 7

Moot-N-Me 5,109 15,317 April 17, 2013 at 09:09 AM
I've gone through the trouble shooting instructions from Microsoft just short of resetting IE to it's original status. (such as disabling the script debugging in IE advanced options and making sure Java and Adobe are up to date. All history and cookies are clean, recycle bin clear, and I still have plenty of disk space. (Toshiba laptop...a little over a year old)

I'm getting a message at the bottom of many websites that says Long Running Script-Do you want to stop script....or Website is not responding due to long running script.

The only new thing that has been done right before this started is a change of internet providers - this one is supposed to be faster than the previous one but things are running slow and I can't seem to get rid of these script. Actually everyone else's computer in the house is running faster (internet) except mine. The person who came over for the install (cable change also) made changes to all of the computers for connection to their service.

Does anyone have any idea what may be causing this and/or how I can fix it? I wanted to ask before I do a complete system restore.

TIA

What about not using IE? Chrome and Firefox are both extremely good, and in many cases faster and more secure.

Are you having trouble on all websites or just a few?

I have not tried those but I did read a few people suggesting Chrome or Firefox when I did a google search on the issue. Which would you suggest I try first?

It's pretty much all websites now. Every once in a while, if I wait about 5-10 seconds to click on anything, the message will not pop up. It seems like each site takes a while to load everything before I can even do anything.

Thank you for your help Smilie

He went into each computer and changed something (he may have said server) so we would be able to connect to the new router. He also put in different passcodes.

I use and really like Chrome. It updates silently and frequently. It also includes flash player and manages its update process as well. Assuming your on an older version of IE, Chrome will be significantly faster.

My guess is the installer did change something and that may be the cause. It would be worth your time to do a scan with Malwarebytes and your AV program as well just to rule those out.

I'm going to do the scans now. I am also going to set up Chrome. If I still have the issue would you suggest a system restore? I have a feeling it has to do with the install because these issues started after that.
