My husband's new (manufacturer refurbished) laptop is getting pop up message saying "a script has stopped running. You may wait for it to run again or stop script". He will stop script, but sometimes it does not work and the same message keeps popping up. Is his computer infected already???
He is using a Dell Latitude D620, running Windows 7 and Intel Centrino Duo
2.00 Gb of RAM and a 32 bit operating system capable of becoming 64 bit
Win Patrol (free)
He also has Firefox addon:
My husband sustained damage to his short term memory during a biopsy a few years ago, hence my efforts to prevent ads popping up and tempting him. He also looks up sites specializing in the naked female form, but no activity involved unless it is just moving around, if you get my meaning. Nothing hard core and he does watch the "safe" signals on the browser results. I also got him to remember not to click on the topics/ads on the sides of the pages he looks at.
Other than this script problem I wanted to know if there was a way to speed up the computer. He uses Facebook and some of their games, YouTube and does searches on various subjects from history to card tricks and those mentioned above. He complains it can take seemingly forever for things to boot up like puling up emails, watrching vids on youtube and game play as well as the script problem hanging up the computer and the problem when telling the script to stop running and it refuses, necessitating a hard shut down.
Can someone there help me?
