I'm having a bad problem with my computer ,it's very slow.
Most icons do not respond on the desktop,sometimes IE9 works,then not at all.
I'm getting a message not to run Script on this webpage???
What is SCRIPT?...How do I get rid of it?
I did a defrag ,3hours and a disk cleanup,not much help.
Sometimes Windows does not respond.
Computer is a Toshiba,64bit,windows7.
Thanks for all the help.
are snippets of programing, that tell the page to load certain items or perform certain functions
that "script" is probably trying to access to many servers and load images or ads or something else
sometimes it can happen because the server that the web site/page you want is overloaded ( being used to heavily ) and the data wont transfer fast enough
the script is waiting on some function to complete before doing something else
Options, always have options, and the journey goes much smoother ....

Just for sh$$$ and grins, have you run a Memory Diagnostics Test?
My 5-yr old Gateway Windows Vista 32 became very slow. Then browsers started crashing. Sometimes back-to-back-back (FF 13.01, IE 9, Chrome last version).
After checking windows vista forum, did the Memory Diag Test and found memory was bad. Replaced the memory with slightly faster version and stability is back with some speed increase, especially boot-up.
It sounds like you're having several problems, possibly related, maybe not. Get someone knowledgable nearby to look at your startup items first. A lot of programs set themselves to load into memory at startup whether they're used frequently or not. This slows down everything else.
You could also have some resident malware that's gone undetected.
Lastly, check for all current updates to the OS and your browser.

When you first sign into your desktop likely your computer is running too many add on programs "Leach Ware" using up resources. I use Sysinternals Suite Utilities from technet.microsoft.com to control what programs that are allowed to start automatically.
Autoruns for Windows v11.31 Newest Release is the specific utility of the suite showing you what programs are configured to run during system boot-up or log in, and shows you the entries in the order Windows processes them.

all those programs that load in the background check to see if they are the latest version along with the active programs you are running can bring many a computer to a halt..

very short list of programs removed from running automatically on my machine.
Microsoft Indexing can also slow things down.
Run task manager and check what and how many processes are running in the background.. 67 in my case lots of extra stuff running
so before you think you have a virus or something check to see what extra baggage you can throw overboard first...
siggdy ---- I am a very heavy computer user. With Windows computers the way they are designed over time they just build up crud. Basically your registry gets big and so even fast ones slow way down. Using the standard disk cleanup and defrag that comes with Windows really help.
You likely have something else slowing your box down. I personally like Advanced Systems Care for cleaning out crub and trimming the registry. It is free. Give that a try.
Even with all the care I give my Windows computer after two years my expensive Sony laptop takes a long time to start up and run right. At least 5-7 minutes. So I just leave it on most of the time. I engage hibernate when I am not using it.
The "final solution" is to reinstall a clean windows OS. Many heavy users do that every six months. Our local computer shop charges 100 bucks. That cleans everything off and you start fresh. But you need to save copies of all your files you want to save.
If you are brave you can download a copy of Linux and load it on your computer. It is free and works quite well. You need to save copies of your files before you do this though.
