Running scripts pop-up.....what does it mean?

SheilaDecember 30, 2008

Everytime I log on I get this pop-up asking me if I want to continue running scripts. I answer it 'yes', then click it away. It's annoying. Any way to stop it from constantly appearing? And what does 'running scripts' mean anyway? As you can tell I'm computer illiterate! I'm using a Toshiba Satellite A135 with Vista Premium. TIA.

usually that is a problem with in a website you are visiting, there is a script that is running with in that site that is not functioning properly, your browser will alert you to this, if it causes your browser to freeze hit stop script, often it can cause the browser to shut down.
If you are using firefox this can sometimes happen if one of your add-ons is having issues.

The only site where this happens to me is GW. If I click on a thread (decorating forum or kitchen forum), I get the long running script message & can't read the thread (often it just shuts the browser down compltetely).
