computer running slow

Hi all,
My computer keeps running very slowly - especially on start up - and I keep getting the message ( Internet explorer is not responding due to a long running script )
I sometimes have to restore the session.
How do I find out what this script thing is - and stop it!
I have windows 7 home.
TIA

When was the last time you checked the update settings as it sounds like you have one hanging about and not installing, run the update troubleshooter

Hi Freddo,
Went into windows update and there was an update pending. I cancelled it and it seems to have speeded up computer again - touch wood!
Many thanks.
Dave c.

On an older computer such as this could be a myriad of things. It's quite possible the hard drive is creaking a bit which happens after a few years. You may also need to clear web cache - if in doubt, easiest to have a local PC shop take a look.
