Do you get that warning when using FireFox?   Is it from the same site all the time? or happens on many sites.?

The one you show is from this site, > http://scorecardresearch.com/Home.aspx   Is this to do with your work or have you agreed to take part in some type of survey?

Honestly I cant remember if it was one site or a few .. but it hasn't happened since last night those 3 times. I was on a site by accident I clicked on a coupon (think I clicked on the wrong link) I had to print but it wasn't a survey unless I clicked on the incorrect link ..

 

Hasn't happened since then and my computer isn't running sluggish anymore.

Hi ..

 

I was on the newegg website looking for a wireless card for my computer and got that unresponsive script on that page. My modem had to be changed yesterday and was trying to figure out which is best for my computer. It has confused me :(

What model was your modem changed to.?

Why do you need a wireless card.   Direct cable connect to a modem usually gives better performance and is more stable.

If you use IE, do you get script errors?

Have you still got Chrome installed?

I upgraded my cable boxes from verizon and they sent me another modem ... I last requested your opinion on this back in post #319 I believe it was. I had a black one now my wireless fios router is a black and red one, I upgraded to what they call the "fios quantum internet, Speeds up to 75 Mbps/35 Mbps.

 

This is the wireless card you recommended .... http://www.newegg.co...ID=fib6gpm20r5a

 

I just went back to newegg to copy the url and i got that script again like 3 times ... think that is whats slowing down my computer and making it sluggish so I closed it and now my computer isnt sluggish anymore.

 

I understand the cable is more stable but because I had to move my desktop to the other end of the apartment I really didn't want to run a cable across the entire hall .. presently its on the floor from the front room to the back of the apartment which is my livingroom.

 

No I havent used IE so dont  know if I would get those scripts ... I really dont like IE and yes I still have chrome installed on my computer ....

 

As I was typing this to you it is slow and sluggish again and I was using FF .. once closed it was no longer slow and sluggish

OK, I now remeber why you wanted the card.   The one on Newegg will be good to use.

 

Even though you do not launch Chrome, extensions still run in the background and this could be taking up bandwidth, so it needs to be uninstalled, 

Go to , > Control Panel, > Add Remove Programs. > Google Chrome, > Remove.   Follow the prompts, remove everything that is possible.   Restart the computer.

 

Test FF.

So the wireless card you suggested is still good to use with this new router as well?

As I do not use FF, try fixes from this article, start with the Reset Firefox Feature first and if you still have problems, perform the other tasks.
