    Hope this is the right place to post this. I'm running Windows XP with IE8 and the latest updates for both and for Flash and Java. Recently I've been getting pages that pause in loading and present me with the message "a script on this page is causing Internet Explorer to run slowly. If it continues to run your computer might become unresponsive". I usually click Yes and carry on. Or I can switch over to Firefox where I never get this message.I never used to get this message using IE8 in the past, but now quite a few sites present it to me. I know why I get the message, but is there any way to track down what script is causing this, or is there an update I'm missing that will fix it for me? Thanks.
