HP Pavilion Entertainment PC running XP SP3. I select the Disable script debugging Internet Explorer) and Disable script debugging (Other) check boxes and clear the Display a notification about every script error check box but still getting the scripting error:

A script on this page is causing IE to run slowly. If it continues to run, your computer might become unresponsive.

No issues with FF or Chrome, any ideas please?

Hi mystic :)

Do you get that error on every webpages/websites you open on Internet Explorer, or only some of them?

No it wasn't site specific which was what I had originally thought but now all of a sudden I am not seeing the errors anymore, maybe it just took a while for the the debugging options to take effect.

It could be a leftover in your Internet cache file. You can try clearing the cache with TFC (Temp File Cleaner), just in case. It doesn't hurt, plus it's good to clean up the temp files on a system.

  • Download and execute Temp File Cleaner (TFC);
  • Simply click on Start to launch the clean-up and wait until it completes;

  • Depending on which processes are running, all your programs will be closed and explorer.exe (your Windows shell) will be killed, it will however be relaunched shortly after so do not panic;
  • There's no log to give for this tool;

Hi

Proper information for your specific problem will be found here along with a Fix it.

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/175500/

 

I had the same issue mostly on the Windows TP version of IE11.

This has nothing to do with temp files or cache, just ridiculous scripting that some webmasters feel necessary to present their pages.

Also... most of the sites generating the error are way off W3C compliancy.

 

 

Best of luck and Please keep BC posted!

I advised the person to use either chrome or FF instead of IE but thanks for the help, will come in handy next time.

He should definitely forget about IE 8. It's outdated, unsafe, and more and more websites are not supporting it anymore.

IE8 is the most recent version that can be used on XP.

Yes, and it doesn't change the fact it's outdated. 

 

Firefox and Chrome will be the latest versions when installed on Windows XP. Many times more secure and superior to IE 8.
