Very irritating message on PCA pages

  Yimbo 14:24 18 Dec 2013

For some time past, I've been getting the message (below).

"Windows Internet Explorer. Stop running the script. A script on this page is causing Internet Explorer to run slowly. If it continues to run, your computer might become unresponsive."

It appears constantly on each and every page, whenever I open it on PCA Forums. I can't proceed to scroll until I've dealt with the message, and it's getting really annoying! This is the only site giving me this problem.

Apparently it's caused by a poorly written advertisment or the like. If so, surely it's high time this was sorted!

In IE>tools>options, I've ticked the box "Disable script de-bugging", but to no avail!

Am I alone in this - or can anyone offer advice?

I think that if you check on past postings on the PCA forum, you will find that this as been mentioned many times.

If you do check back to those postings, you may find a number of solutions to the problem that you are having.

Hi Spuds - - I've located and tried to follow the advice on other postings as you said - but no real solution appears to work! Instead, I now have the message below - in addition to the previous one!

Surely somebody, somewhere has an answer to what is clearly a widespread problem!

It is not a problem with the Site that is created by the PCA Team, but one of incompetently created Adverts.

These highly paid advertising Wonks can create all sorts of effects which bring their product to your attention. Unfortunately, they don't care a fig about what happens after their message gets to your screen and frequently they leave loose ends that cause the 'Script Errors' that you are experiencing.

Thanks wee eddie, for your post. I can see that this is a vero common problem, and not one that's down to the PCA Team - - as if!!

Nonetheless, the error messages ONLY appear on this site's pages!

Maybe they'll go away at some point!

Thanks aagin!
