AVF Website - Is it trying to run a script

When I open AVF on my computer (Win 7 64 bit, IE8 32bit version) I get a popup saying that it is trying to run a script that may slow my computer down and asking whether I want to stop it or not.

Anyone else getting this or have I picked up something nasty?

Cheers,

Nigel

Yep, just tested a few - only on AVF website - if I try other websites I don't get the problem.


Looks like usercp.php

usercp is the user control panel script. Don't know why it would cause this.
Any other reported scripts?

Can you tell me exactly what browser you are using, what page you are on (the address) and what the message is, please? I can't even start to address it unless I have specific information.

Sorry about that.
I'm on AOL which I believe is IE8, it happens when I open the main forum list page and the message is the same as nheather's.
It all appears fine on chrome.

I just loaded IE8, then up the top left of AVF home page clicked on Forums, then Forums List. It seemed to go very slow but that may well just be IE8 being crap. When I clicked on switch to expanded view on the right I got the error.

I've managed to upload a BMP screenshot with the post reply screen but don't know how to post it.

When you open AVF homepage it is fine.

It happens when you select Forums>Forum List

Just tried a few others - just happens in Forums>Forum List.

Other menu options are fine.

Doesn't happen to me in Firefox but the whole screen flashes blue for a split second instead. Then the page loads.

Oh yeah, the page loads eventually after waiting 10 seconds for mystatus.skype.com.

I am suddenly getting this on IE8, only on AVF so something is amiss. "Disable script debugging" is ticked in internet options so what is is it?

Same here.

Clicked on forum list. Thought IE8 had locked up.

After about 1 minute I was asked if I wanted to abort the script.

I did and now everything appears to be ok.

Nothing for me in FF 3.6, IE9 or Chrome.

EDIT: IE9 is a horrible, horrible browser. Eugh!

Just to confirm with those saying it isn't happening.

I only get this problem when I select Forums from the menu and then select Forum List from the dropdown options.

If I select any other menu\dropdown option I don't get the problem.

So when you say that you are not getting the problem is that true with the above Menu\Dropdown selection?
