A script on page is busy

Specs: Windows XP
I am running WinXP, and for about two months now I have been receiving the pop-up messages I copied below. I don't know exactly what they mean, but lately they have become much more frequent. four or five an hour!. Each notice has, naturally, a different specific in the Script line. Further, it seems to make no difference whether I allow the script to continue or not. After I click one, the computer goes back to what it was doing before the pop-up.
I really would like to get fix this glitch. Help anyone?

MESSAGE IN POP-UP: "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: <a href="https://secure.identityguard.com/wcsstore/ICD/javascript/jquery.js:4<" target="_blank">https://secure.identityguard.com/wc...
For any and all help I shall be super grateful.

mucklucks, that script is to take you to the Identity Guard store. Do you have/want it? My guess is you have a nasty (virus, worm/trojan, etc.?). Be aware that a virus and a Trojan are similar, but not the same. Many times, an AV detects one it can't clean, other times, it gets missed entirely.
If you need to clean one, Superantispyware (info only. I’m not paid for recommendation. WARNING! FYI, a full scan on mine takes over an hour.) can do the job and you can get it free @:
among other places. They have a Vista compatible version if needed. Dunno about Windows 7 or later.
If it turns out that you need to use it, be sure to update Superantispyware prior to running. Disable 'restore' after cleaning and run it again (to remove any nasties living there, restart after cleaning) so the nasty doesn't get put back should you later ‘restore’. They just released a new update recently and it changes all the time. Things are in a constant state of flux.
The restore thing is critical. May not be your deal at all, but won't hurt anything to try.

Thanks Ed. I'm going straight over to download Superantispyware, though I can't run it till later tonight. I shall stop my Norton Security Suite before I double-run Superantispyware, and I'll certainly disable restore, etc. as advised. I'll let you know what how things go. And thanks for your careful instructions.
