website stops responding

I had asked this question in the Newbies Forum but then thought perhaps I shouls also post it on this forum.

Every time I go to a website to open it I receive a message at the bottom saying that particular website has stopped responding. Then there is a box in the message that I can click that says, "recover website." Sometimes I get a message that says, " is not responding."This is very annoying. Also, I receve a similar message on some websites that says, " is running a long script" Then there is also a box that I can click that says, "Stop script." Sometimes I will be in a website and I can receive either of these messages in the midst of whatever I am doing and of course, everything just freezes up. How can I fix this?
I run CCleaner, do a disc clean up, and defragment on a regular basis. I also ran CHKDSC and there were no problems noted. The sites I visit most often are:,, and
I am running Windows Vista and use a wireless internet,(although I recently hardwired my laptop to the wireless receiver). There are two things that occured recently that may have some effect as I never had this problem before. One is that my Hotmail account forced me to use Outlook at and I downloaded and use Internet Explorer 9. I would appreciate your assistance in helping me fix this problem.
