hi, my friend's 5yr old pc keeps dropping his dial-up connection and an 'expert' he knows told him his pc has a 'script', was does this mean please?

your guess is as good as mine. It could be he means a virus. It could be that in the settings for his modem there is a time set to drop connection. Try looking at the settings for the modem.

Anyone else any idea what he means?

why don't you ask him? How can we know what he means?
There are good scripts and malicious scripts.

The whole operating system and programs run on scripts. In simple terms they are instructions to tell it what to do.
