I am running windows xp and I am experiencing two annoying phenomena.
I frequently get a message on screen to the effect "This programe is not responding"...etc. and instructing me to turn off the programe. I have to close the programe down and re-open it, hoping it wont occur again (which it often does).
The second problem I am experiencing is when I am on a webpage, I very often receive a message stating " A script on this page is causing it to run slowly" I get the option to stop the offending script or risk the page crashing, which it often does.
I would appreciate any help in solving either (or both) of these problems

I've accessed that link, and I will wade through it. Thanks for responding, I'll post back when I've done it.

I tried to download speccy, but can't afford tbe home version at 15.00 . The free version proved too complicated for me so sadly I will have to suffer the inconenience a bit longer!

Please note that I have had Speccy installed for several years, on several units, and I have always used the Free version -

To be honest, I have never noted that there was a Paid option available

The Directions are usually quite simple to follow and these are the directions that I always leave -
Please post a snapshot with Speccy -
