Since Monday I have been having problems with FB with some games I play. I keep getting a popup saying a script is not responding . It is always  Fbstatic-a-akamahd.net  ( with various numbers at the end. I click continue script. Sometimes it works but sometimes I have to use task manager to shut down my browser and then relaunch. It happens on Firefox and also on Google Chrome. Any ideas on how to fix this. It also seems to affect the speed at which FB pages load. They are taking a lot longer to load and when I am typing it is slow. I have Windows XP.

 

I did a search on my computer and it found 4 files in documents and settings with that name. Two from 8/11 and two from 8/14.

I don't know if this had anything to do with it, but I found browsersafeguard.exe on my computer, which I do not remember installing. After I removed it, I had no more problems with fbstatic popups.

A quick google suggests that 'Browsersafeguard' falls into the group of software called 'potentially unwanted programs' - not necessarily harmful but annoying.

 

This was almost certainly the cause of your problem, and if it happens again, or you find it has re-installed itself on your computer, I suggest that you start a new topic in the 'Am I infected' section of BC. If you need to, include a reference to this topic in any new topic about 'Browserafeguard'.
