Script on IE causes it to run slowly

Hi,

I've been getting this message quite regularly after about 4 hours of logging into my machine:

"A script on this page is causing Internet Explorer to run slowly. If it continues to run, your computer may become unresponsive. Do you want to abort the script?"

Could someone help.

Thanks

Hello georjkuruvi,

The problem could be that your machine is slowing down, so longer script does not have time to finish.  Restarting the computer should fix the problem.

The problem could be due a script taking a long time to run.  You need to add a registry DWORD and value.

georjkuruvi,

You can disable script debugger:

http://www.fjsmjs.com/IE/scriptdb.htm

Go to Tools | Internet Options | Advanced.
Check the box to Disable script debugging.
Uncheck the box to Display a notification about every script error.

1. You might want to refresh your scripting engine: Windows Script 5.7 for Windows XP
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=47809025-d896-482e-a0d6-524e7e844d81&DisplayLang=en

Sometimes there's a corrupt file in the cache and one must go to Tools | Internet Options and click Delete Files.

2a. Start>Run>Regsvr32 vbscript.dll

2b. Start>Run>Regsvr32 jscript.dll

(WinXP users who have problems with 2a and 2b, see
http://www.mvps.org/inetexplorer/answers_9.htm)

3. Re-register all DLLs listed in http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=281679

georjkuruvi,

It is a script on the webpage.  But IE does not identify which script it is.
