A script on this page is causing internet explorer to run slowly
if it continues to run, your computer might become unresponsive.

hi, a few days ago I started getting this message, the strange thing is that IE doesn't even have to be running at the time. I could be wrong but it seems to have something to do with yahoo messenger. reason being it is the only program I know that is running when I get this message.

I have checked to see if there are any recent updates with yahoo messenger, I have also have fun McFee, Malwarebytes and SuperAntispyware too with none of them finding any thing.

do anyone have any ideas on what might cause this?

I would use the following: Revo Uninstaller to completely remove Yahoo Messenger and then reinstall it.

When you load up Yahoo do you have the welcome window activated the window that pops up with news and alerts and what not?

Its called the Yahoo Insider.

If so can go to preferences and try disabling it and see if you no longer get that error?
