"stop running this script"
"a script on this page is causing Internet explorer to run slowly. If it continues to run, your computer might become unresponsive"
Since sometime in the last week we have encountered the above message on a number of PCs on our network (all running IE). It is only while trying to access certain websites that the message appears, and when it does memory usage climbs dramatically and the PC becomes unresponsive. In some cases we can close IE and the computer becomes responsive again (until we try to access the site again) but in other cases we have to restart the PC. The following suggestion on the internet has been applied, such as
2. a) tools, internet options, advanced, browsing checked both two boxes to disable script debugging, untick display notification of every script error
b) general tab, browsing history delete temporary files, history and cookies.
3. tools, internet options, security, internet, custom level, select reset to medium option, then click reset.
All of this did not help, however one suggestion help a bit
4. tools, internet options, security, internet, custom level, in the pop-up dialog, scroll to the section "Scripting", then disable "Active Scripting", press Ok and
close windows, however
“#CAUTION - Most websites including Yahoo rely heavily on active scripting and will not work properly after this. So revert back to original option after viewing the page which was causing problems.”
Unfortunately, with Active Scripting disabled, there are features on some sites that no longer work, so this is not a proper fix for the problem. Firefox does not appear to be affected by this problem, however we do not want to use this browser, as we have some policy being applied on the domain. Therefore this is just a temporary fix/workaround.
I have observed the problem on PCs running XP, Vista, and 7 Pro, and on IE 6 (after uninstalling 8), 8 and 9.
Any advice how to resolve this issue?
