I use a 2002 dell optiplex gx270 mini tower running xp. I use comodo firewall. I use super anti-spyware. I added 2 gigs of ram recently.I use firefox as my browser. I changed my server from microsoft to google public. The system runs well.

 

Often, however, right after I pull pull up a web site, you tube, for example, I'll get a warning message about an unresponsive script. Here's the latest one:

 

" A script on this page may be busy, or it may have stopped responding. You can stop the script now, open the script in the debugger, or let the script continue.

Script: https://www.youtube.com/yts/js…qBkx/webcomponents-lite.min.js:11"

 

I then am given the option to continue, debug the script, or, stop the script.

 

What does this mean and what should I do?

 

ThanksI

That's a commonplace situation...I always just stop the script, believing that it's of no positive value on the webpage in question.

Ok. Thanks. By the way, changing the CMOS battery, as you suggested, in my earlier posts, breathed new life into this old computer. Adding 2 gigs of RAM didn't hurt either. Thanks for responding.

It's because the modern Internet is full of bloated JS slapped everywhere by hipster coders who don't give any care to any people on older computers. Just stop the script.

Thanks ChirunolceFairy. Is JS java script? Yeah, that sounds right. I'll just stop the script. Now that I've educated myself on my GX270 running XP, I realize that I'm too busy running anti virus programs just to keep fairly safe. Besides, my motherboard looks kinda puny compared to newer desktops. I think i'm gonna get a newer PC with Windows 10. That way, I don't have to constantly remove all the PUP's and adware stuff. But being a complete novice, I needed to find out why, for myself.

 

Thanks again. Anything I could possibly want to know is here at BP.

You should get a newer PC and research into one that will support legacy boot and Windows 7, because Windows 10 won't be a good experience if you're coming straight from XP.
