I keep seeing the message,"Yahoo is not responding due to long running script."  After months of this, today I went to Yahoo.com and from there downloaded Error Repair Tool.  Ended up with "Tech Utilities" installed and I hit the SCAN button.  After some time the result of the scan was 581 issues found on my pc.  In order to fix the issues, however, it was recommended that I REGISTER the program, which involved, of course, $$.  I am so fed up with being led by the nose with the impression that my issue will be fixed, only to be held up for money after wasting my time.  Are there no honest websites anymore?  Really???

I suspect you clicked on an ad, not a Yahoo message, and downloaded a PUP (potentially unwanted program). I would just uninstall it.

Already done.  Thank you!  Is there a forum or tutorial about the long-running script issue?

That largely depends on what webpage or pages you are viewing in Yahoo when the error occurs.

 

I suspect it's when you are viewing your Yahoo mail. If so, you might want to have a look at this link:

Do you see the problem on www.yahoo.com or some link you click from the Yahoo! WWW page?

 

If you keep waiting does the WWW site eventually respond?

 

There is nothing you can do about long running script messages since the scripts are not running on your system - the scripts are running on the web page you are visiting and that makes it someone else's problem (aslo known as SEP).

 

It could be the script is poorly or inefficiently written or is having some errors that you will never seem and will never be able to fix.

 

The issue is probably consistent with just certain WWW sites (sometimes Facebook has this problem).

 

You can contact the owner of the site and let them know, you can look in their online community support for similar reports but there is no adjustment you can make that will make their scripts run faster.

 

You can disable the display of some of the scripting type messages in Internet Explorer options or by clicking the Start button/orb and in the box enter:

 

inetcpl.cpl

 

Then under the Advanced tab you can disable the display of these kinds of messages:
