  1. Can anybody help me? I've been getting this message :

    "A script on this page is causing Internet Explorer to run slowly. If it continues to run, your computer may become unresponsive. Do you want to abort the script?"

    I got this message in these places : Yahoo messenger, Windows live messenger, internet explorer, control panel, and program files.

    Please help!

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Try this.

    Common script errors messages can be eliminated by Clicking:
    1. Open Internet Explorer.
    2. On the Tools menu, click Internet Options.
    3. In the Internet Options dialog box, click Advanced.
    4. Click to select the Disable script debugging check box.
    5. Click to clear the Display a notification about every script error check box.
    6. Click OK.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    If that doesn`t work,this from HERE

    There are situations when a Web page contains script that takes an unusually long time to run.
    There will be a warning message after a certain number of statements has been processed.

    The solution is to increase the default number of statements,before the warning is given


    1.Go to Start/Run/type :regedit

    Open this key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\InternetExplorer\Styles

    (If the Styles key is not present, create a new key that is called Styles.)

    2.Right click anywhere in the right pane and create a new DWORD value called "MaxScriptStatements"
    (copy and paste that in to the name box) and set the value to the desired number of script statements.

    Try 8,000,000 to start with.

    Be careful editing the registry.Back up the key first.

    Your system is infected with a Trojan downloader, as well as some other nasties.

    Very Important: Before deciding whether you should clean or reformat your system, go and read this thread HERE and decide what it is you want to do.

    If after reading the above, you wish to clean your system, do the following.

    You might want to copy and paste these instructions into a notepad file. Then you can have the file open in safe mode, so you can follow the instructions easier.

    Boot into safe mode, under your normal user name(NOT THE ADMINISTRATOR ACCOUNT). See how HERE.

    In Windows Explorer, turn on "Show all files and folders, including hidden and system". See how HERE.

    Delete all files in AVG Antispyware quarantine.

    Click start/run and type services.msc into the run box and press the enter key.

    When the window appears, maximise it. Double click on the following services(if there) and select stop if they are running. Set the startup type to disabled. Click apply/ok for each service you disable.

    npkcsvc

    Close the services window.

    Open your task manager, by holding down the ctrl and alt keys and pressing the delete key.

    Click on the processes tab and end process for(if there).

    npkcsvc.exe
    LimeWire.exe
    hope roam cdrom.exe

    Close task manager.

    Run HJT with no other programmes open(except notepad). Click the scan button. Have HJT fix the following, by placing a tick in the little box next to(if there).

    R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Local Page = C:\windows\system32\blank.htm

    R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Local Page = C:\windows\system32\blank.htm

    R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings,ProxyServer = 10.19.19.19:9201<Fix this if you didn`t set this proxy yourself, or don`t know what it is.

    O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [BaseScr] C:\DOCUME~1\ADMINI~1\APPLIC~1\DATARE~1\hope roam cdrom.exe

    O4 - Startup: LimeWire On Startup.lnk = C:\Program Files\LimeWire\LimeWire.exe

    O23 - Service: npkcsvc - INCA Internet Co., Ltd. - C:\WINNT\system32\npkcsvc.exe

    Click on the fix checked button.

    Close HJT.

    Locate and delete the following bold files and/or directories(if there).

    C:\WINNT\system32\npkcsvc.exe
    C:\DOCUME~1\ADMINI~1\APPLIC~1\DATARE~1<Delete the entire folder.
    C:\windows\system32\blank.htm

    Reboot into normal mode and rehide your protected OS files.

    Download, install and run the Prevx1 programme.

    Post a fresh HJT and Combofix logs. Let me know the results of the Prevx1 scan.

    Regards Howard :)

    That`s fine, your HJT log is clean.

    You can uninstall Prevx1 now if you want along with the rest of the stuff you downloaded in the instructions.

    Here are the programmes I recommend you keep/install. I know you already have already some of these.

    Spybot Search & Destroy.

    Ad-Aware se personal.

    Spyware Blaster.

    AVG Antispyware.

    Ccleaner.

    If you have any further virus/spyware problems, please post in this thread.

    Regards Howard :)

    That`s a shame, obviously it`s not a malware problem as your system is now clean.

    I have therefore moved your thread to our windows OS forum. Hopefully, someone will know how to solve your IE problem there.

    @Po`Girl
    Still doesn't work...
    Actually I rarely use IE. But because my Yahoo Messanger show that message too, I cannot use it now. And when I opened a folder filled with picture files (thumbnail view), the message also showed..

    Please help!

    @howard_hopkinso
    Thanks for helping me remove the trojan.

    Are you hinting it might be the old "image preview problem" -
    when Windows tries to show thumbnails of image and video files,
    but crashes Explorer in the process.? :)

    There aren`t usually any warning messages with that, though.

    Anyway the usual fix is to turn off image previews -

    Go to Start/Run/and type - regsvr32 /u shmedia.dll click OK.

    to turn them on again(if you want to) regsvr32 shmedia.dll

    There are other methods HERE and a download fix for .avi files HERE


    I don`t know if that`s connected to the script warning problem.

    Internet Explorer and Windows Explorer are basically the same thing.

    If you fix one,you also fix the other.

    These are my last hopes -

    1.Download CCleaner and run it.

    Make sure all the boxes are checked in both the Windows and Applications settings.
    Also use the Issues tool.

    2.Go into IE/Tools/Options/Security/Custom and uncheck all java script/active scripting boxes,
    any other likely suspects.

    3.Use the IE Repair Tool or reinstall IE (6) HERE

    4.Uninstall IE roll back to a previous version (if you have a previous version) then
    reinstall IE.HERE

    5.If you have any convenient System Restore points,try that.

    6.Uninstall any programs that were installed just before the problem started.

    As you had a lot of spyware removed could be something
    is still on there or it broke something.Try system filechecker.
    Its only thing you haven`t tried.

    ok. I'll try. but i need to find my Win2000 cd. I forget where I put it..
     
  22. BlameCanada

    BlameCanada TS Rookie Posts: 356

    You don`t need the cd for filechecker,just type sfc /scannow in the run box.
    I`m thinking you might end up doing a reinstall

    but when I run it, it says "Files that are required for Windows to run properly must be copied to the DLL cache. Insert your Service Pack 4 CD now."

    Setting Timeout Period

    The reason for that message is that Windows has a timeout for vbscripts and java scripts to run. This usually happens if the script is having to perform a process on a large file. See the Microsoft document:
