I need to disable a script running on my browser.
There is a message that comes up saying. quote: 'Stop running this script? Ascript on this page is causing Internet Explorer to run slowly. If it continues to run, your computer might become unresponsive' Unqote.
When I click 'yes' to stop running the script, nothing happens and the browser just freezes.
Can you please tell me how to set my internet options to avoid this?

We need to perform certain steps to resolve this problem,.
As the browser which you are using is Internet Explorer(Version not specified) here are the setps...
1>Click on START and then CLick on Run.
2>In the run Windows type INETCPL.CPL and hit enter.
3>This command would open the Internet Options Window.
4>CLick on ADVANCED TAB which woud be at the top right hand corner,click on that.
5>This would show us another page with a lot of option with Checkboxes beside them.
6>Locate an option which reads as DISABLE SCRIPT DEBUGGING (INTERNET EXPLORER)...
7>Put a check in the checkbox beside the abovementioned option and then click on APPLY and OK.
8>Close all other applications and then Open Internet Explore window....It would not give us error message this time.

Hope this Works!!!

You may have a bad BHO on the system also. Need to view and remove OR disable as per above post.
Would also run. ( must manually configure )
Post back if you don't understand.
