Good Morning!

A Fantastic Fourth Followed by a Fabulous Friday, Friends?

Hopefully.

At least this will provide a Festive start:
Days to the Season: 131
Days to Christmas Day: 173
Well here you have it -- SINGLE DIGITS now to the 2/3 Season marker, #11 on our Milestone chart.
And as can also be seen, a double-digits count to the Season will commence one month from tomorrow.
WOW!!

Still rather warm and humid, with a very brief early evening shower yesterday.
Still hoping for a dry day today.
Right now, we have 74 degrees here in the capital city.

OK, Folks.
You have a great one and thoroughly enjoy your Weekend Eve!

If I click the button no, it doesn't like it and things run very slow, if at all and the CPU useage goes very high and the computer wil lock up. If I click the button yes, the page then allows me to edit, quote, thanks, scroll, etc... and it behaves like normal (as it used to). Do any of you computer experts out there have any ideas or suggestions????

Thank you!
Mine keeps doing this too! See, it's just not me, Made!!!

Everyone:

The problem that I was having at home on my pc (Windows XP) with the MMC pages is also happening at my work computer (Windows 7) with the script message. Both of the computers are using a Nortons anti virus (two different types), so I leading to believe that neither is the problem, because I do not have that message popping up on any other websites that I have went to.

With so many others here have the same issue here, it has to be something to do with one of the latest changes that was made to the MMC website that is making all my (and others) computers so unhappy?

Hmmmm, I have to take that part back.... I have spent the time this morning opening up a multitude of web pages and here are a couple of more websites that I have the same problem with;

Bing (homepage) - google works fine
QVC.com - franklin mint, Amazon works fine
Map Quest
A Christmas House
The History Channel

I went into about 30 different websites from various different subject matters from Christmas, TV, space and weather, shopping, etc....
I do not know if this info helps, but I'm trying to help.... If anyone see's any other websites doing this maybe it wouldn't hurt to list them?
