A script is causing Internet Explorer to run slowly

    I keep getting an IE error whenever I try to open a new page on WordPress the error says “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 this script”
    If I say yes the page loads but slowly, if I say no the same happens.
    What have I done wrong? Can any one help?

    What page exactly are you trying to open when you get that? I get that all the time, but not at WP.com. It’s usually dynamic advertising or autoplay music or videos in my experience.

    I’m getting the error as well. And it only happens when I’m doing anything wordpress related, such as surfing wordpress blogs or doing stuff on my own blog.

    It only happens to when I’m doing on wordpress, such as looking at comments, surfing wordpress blogs or updating my own blog. It happens whether I am logged in as a user or not.

    It’s happening for example with my personal blog: http://surfaze.wordpress.com/

    It only happens with Internet Explorer (6 & 7). With Mozilla it’s working fine.

    You have to click on an entry in order to get the error

    So, it happens only on specific posts, not the main blog page, but it happens on EVERY post, is that right?

    I did notice your YouTubes took AGES to load and slowed down the main page, but I didn’t notice anything else strange about it. Maybe staff can check it out and see what’s up. Could be something behind the scenes that only they can fix is causing this.

    It happens everytime I try to click on a post. If I close Internet Exlorer Window when I am in the main page, I get this problem too.

    The main page loads quickly to me (even with YouTube videos).

    @rain – I just encountered this issue at least 4 times on your blog. Every time I tried to navigate somewhere, even away, I got the darn message.

    Thanks a lot for your feedback ellaella. Could it be the theme I use?

    Let me just spell out some issues here.

    A minute ago, for a long while, I can’t even load the site of WordPress, and it is the same as Buzzfeed and Amongus. This ‘slowness warning’ happened when we tried logging in onto wordpress, after we click on dashboard after we logged in, and I check by trying to load wordpress related sites… Stucked~ Sites including Singaporean’s ‘theonlinecitizen’ can’t be loaded.

    I also experience this after I visited Raincoaster’s blog. But I suppose that’s because I clicked on the fanciful widgets there. I am not saying it’s her blog that’s the problem. I am suspecting some hacker/s’ activities or spreading of trojans or what into the system, our system/network via the respective services’ servers. I was also trying to install widget found at Raincoaster’s blog, but my ‘Text’ just won’t register BuzzFree & Myblogweblog codes in full. I wonder why…

    I am thinking of formating my computer, and I am wondering as well if the ISPs have been affected. Laugh not, because there were recent cases of ISP errors…

    In this instance, allow me to suggest that our community should find a ‘shielded’ gathering place in such case when we are denied acess. Just now, I could not even load this forum… how to reach support? So we need a secured forum or what to ensure everyone is not missing. :)

    I am rather agitated by this… incident. I am a well known IT idiot. Can anyone explain what’s going on??? Thanks!

    I have tried to change the theme I’m now using by another one, but the problem is still happening.

    Dunno. I’ll alert staff with the Bat-Signal and hopefully they’ll resolve it.
