    Unresponsive Script

    I keep getting this message.

    It's very annoying, and it REALLY slows down my machine. Sometime s it won't respond, iterally, for like 10 minutes. How can I solve this problem permanently?

    Thanks everyone!

    I believe that's a shockwave error in Firefox.

    What browser are you using? I first thought it might be Chrome but then I found this:

    Unresponsive Script Warning - MozillaZine Knowledge Base

    In addition, whatever browser you are using, is it the latest version? Also, if you could provide a link to the page that generates that error, maybe we could do some cross-testing. However, if it is not a webpage that is causing your issue, could you please explain what's in that tab that's causing the error?

    I use Firefox 100% of the time. I have Chrome installed, but I never use it.

    I believe Firefox is completely up-to-date. I just did an update a couple weeks ago. This has been a problem for quite some time.

    I don't know what the link is.

    There are several methods described in the link I gave you to help you try and isolate your issue. Unfortunately, I can't tell you exactly what's wrong if I can't test/recreate your issue. One suggestion is/was to try disabling your add-ons and maybe Rickkins can provide some more information relative to his suggestion as well.

    Good luck,

    2 things.

    HDD speed/current usage at the time <<< Good to put pagefile on separate HDD if you have little RAM memory amount.
