✔ Best Answer
Might as well also go to "IE > Tools > Internet Options > Advanced tab" and uncheck any "disable script debugging" entries (under Browsing).

For security on XP you ought not to be using IE. Use an alternative such as Firefox.

Here are a couple of notes about security:

Hello Pamela,

The problem you have is originating from a so called Plug In for your webbrowser.

Most of the time this Plug In is Adobe Flash.
It is not installed by default nor included in Windows XP but at one time you have chosen to install it yourself (or someone who has set up your computer for you).

If the website you are visiting makes (heavily) use of Adobe Flash it can really slow down your computer (the script might be badly written or buggy too).

The only solutions you have are:

- uninstall Flash (or disable the Flash Plugin within your webbrowser) which means you cannot view (all) the content of websites that make use of Flash

- buy a newer and faster computer (and install the latest Flash) so you can continue to visit the webpages which caused the problem

Personally I think Flash is obsolete and websites which make use of it need to change.
Also Flash is mainly used for commercials purposes ( like "flashy" advertisements) and I refuse to buy a new computer just to be able to see advertisements.

Also Flash can have security issues.
If Adobe finds out about such a security issue they will try to address it in the next Flash update, but not as quickly as Microsoft does
Same goes for another Plugin called Java (from a company called Oracle).
Allthough support for Windows XP officially ended in 2014, Microsoft did make security updates after that.

I've never had these script messages with Flash, which I used on XP for years and still use on Win 8.1. Pamela, do you get these messages particularly when you are running flash videos?

Flash adverts can be eliminated by using "Firefox" (browser) with "Adblock Plus". As given in my second link at #2, for security you ought to be using an alternative browser - not IE.
