Default A script that is running..

Hello! My new 3 week old computer pops up with a notice that says "A script is running"..if I disable it, I cannot access wordtwist. If I leave it, my computer is totally disabled. If wordtwist is not open on the computer, the "script" notice doesn't appear and the computer seems to run normally. Any ideas to help me? Thank you!!

I see that all the time on my Linux computer. It's probably from the ads. Ad blocker doesn't run (or at least I haven't found a version that does) on my Linux computer. On my Linux computer, that doesn't shut Wordtwist down when a script is running and doesn't finish -- I can just kill it and go on. So, if you CAN run an ad blocker program, perhaps you should try it. Or, you could just pay Wordtwist their registration fee and not worry about the ads and feel virtuous, too.

I'm currently trying to sell our home and I'm cash poor until it sells (all the money went for repairs and enhancements). I look forward to the day when I'm out from under and have money again. I'd subscribe to Wordtwist in a flash when that happens!

Thanks, bwt1213! I will try that. I hope your house sells soon, so stressful to have a house on the market!
