long-running scripts

only on this website - Why?

Every time I move a page on I get this Bar across the bottom saying "PCA is not responding because of long-running Scripts" and the page is frozen for a while.

not sure why anyone would use the 64bit version of IE when it's known to have many issues which include running 4 times slower than the 32bit version, with javascript being a particular problem.

Almost 2 years old X7-250 maybe things have improved a bit since then but doubtful if they would have changed that much.

you'll find the version numbers haven't changed, so i'd doubt the issues involved have either.

another example is on the java download page, which also recommends not using the 64bit browser due to it's known issues.

I must admit to using the 64bit version of IE, on the basis that the other software on the PC is 64bit.

Can you run the 32bit version of IE on a PC that is 64bit for everything else?

we've been through this in a previous thread of yours, but i'll copy and paste it for you again;

64bit systems have a folder 'programs x86' and it's typical for the majority of software to be installed there, x86 = 32bit

"64-bit Windows operating systems (which may be Windows 7, Vista or XP) come with a 32-bit Internet Explorer (IE) browser as the standard (default) for viewing web pages. These operating systems also include a 64-bit Internet Explorer browser, however using it is optional and it must be explicitly selected to view web pages. Note that because some web content may not work properly in a 64-bit browser, we recommend using the default 32-bit browser and downloading 32-bit Java."

Sometime this morning, between 4.30am and 11.00am, they cured the "long running Script".

Hurrahh.

Many thanks FE and his mignons

Sadly, I still can't tick this thread as Answered, as that bit still doesn't work for me.

Spoke too soon, they're back.

My guess still is: Incompetently designed Adverts.
