Every time I click "Compose" or "Reply" in my Verizon email I get a long pause and then a Windows Internet Explorer dialog box is displayed that says:
"Stop running this script?
A script on this page is causing Internet Explorer to run slowly. If it continues to run, your computer might become unresponsive"
I click "Yes" to make the box go away and then am able to continue composing or replying to emails. It's not stopping me from using my email but it is very annoying and wasting a lot of time.
Does anyone know why this keeps happening? Is the laptop infected with something or is this just a setting that needs to be changed?
Any help anyone can provide would be greatly appreciated.
Make sure your Java is updated and try disabling any addons to see if one of them is causing the error.
This issue caused me much pain before finally getting to root cause. It wasn't latest Java version, it wasn't the microsoft fix, it wasn't setting a registry key or anything else that folks were suggesting. It was caused by Mcafee Siteadviser BHO.
Disable SiteAdviser and I'll bet your problem goes away as well. Go to > Tools > Manage Add-Ons, scroll down to Mcafee Siteadviser and disable.
