I keep getting "A web page is slowing your browser".

Posted

I use TalkTalk as a provider and their homepage is a succession of AOL news items. Any item I click on after a minute or so gives me this message.... A web page is slowing your browser. Can anyone tell me how to remove it please? I'm on Windows 7 and FF is up to date.

Many thanks Fred for this prompt response. I haven't got Spysweeper, but I'll go through the other options.

Then you should change your homepage to just plain Google and see if that slows down or not.
