Slow Computer and Unresponsive Script

August 14, 2010 at 12:02:36
Specs: Microsoft Windows XP Professional, 2.6 GHz / 511 MB

I am currently using the latest version of FireFox, and I often have "Unresponsive Script" errors. My computer also starts up slow, and when I click FireFox and iTunes, they take minutes to open. When they open, they are usually frozen for a few minutes before they work. Could someone help me clean my computer or provide anything else to help my comp run faster? Thanks!!

I ran the CCleaner and it's not letting me post an image of the startup tab of the System Configuration Utility.

I made some changes,


Weather.exe 1
ctfmon.exe (this identical file was also checked)

Thanks! Hopefully after I reboot my comp will run faster!

I would un-check AdobeARM.exe, & update myself when needed.
Same goes for Language.exe & qttask.exe.

also if you have 1 stick of 512mb and a empty slot, another stick is about $15.

I'll look into getting a 512 mb stick. Is that what's giving me the unresponsive script?

Today my FireFox took 5 minutes to load, and iTunes took about 4 minutes. Here's the "Warning: Unresponsive Script" I got.

A script on this page may be busy, or it may have stopped responding. You can stop the script now, or you can continue to see if the script will complete.

Script: file:///C:/Program%20Files/Mozilla%20Firefox/components/nsBlocklistService.js:648

Also, I used to use IE, but changed to FireFox. For some reason, my Flash player does not work in IE. Also, I can't display html code in FireFox, only in IE.

firefox & IE use different versions of flash, here is the one for IE:

I downloaded the Flash for IE and there has been NO change. I still can't see Flash objects in IE. I've probably downloaded Flash a dozen times and it never works for IE.

Also, I'm not familiar with exactly which addons to disable.

"Also, I'm not familiar with exactly which addons to disable. "

adblock or no script, would be a start. I would disble any add-on you installed

In FireFox, I clicked on Tools, then Add Ons, and I have 4 tabs: Get Add Ons, Extensions, Themes, Plugins. Where are my Add-ons?

I'm still getting unresponsive script errors.

I don't know which version of IE you have. If it is 8, uninstall it and revert back to IE7 (much faster for XP), then reset Internet explorer.
Now try the standalone flash player
Don't click on the run a free scan buttion, wait for the warning on the toolbar and then click allow it to download. That should work for you.

Some HELP in posting on plus free progs and instructions Cheers

I am currently using IE7 and i tried the standalone flash player and all of the players on myspace and youtube ask for me to download flash. I've tried and tried to download it but it does nothing. Thanks though.
