This is an interesting situation , when I try to run in one of my favorite website on Internet Explorer 8 , it 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 the script?" Especially if that website contains the Google friend connect script or Wibiya social script or some big loading times java script.The layman phenomena is to set it to �No� otherwise computer can become unresponsive.The actual situation is when a script gets a longer time to run or execute and this mainly happens on slow internet connection like say dial up connection then Internet Explorer will give you an option of disabling the operation of stopping the script.If you want to continue running the script, you can change the script time-out value by editing the registry. Here’s how:
- Open the Registry Editor , navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftInternet ExplorerStyles
- Styles selected in the left pane, in the right pane right click an empty space and select New | DWORD (32-bit) value.
- Name the new value MaxScriptStatements
- Double click the MaxScriptStatements value and in the value data field, set the value to 0xFFFFFFFF to avoid this message ever popping up.
