    Heya
    Is it just me or Windows central website likes to crash frequently on my HP Envy running 8.1?
    Everything is up to date, when I try to load this website I get 2 errors on a regular basis.
    1. not responding due to a long running script ( button says stop script)
    2 Not responding ( button says recover web page).

    these 2 just ruin my browsing experience. Is there something I can do to fix it. I like IE better than other browsers, so hopefully one of the suggestions is not to switch

    Cheers

    Not just frequently, constantly. Switch to Google Chrome for a better experience. And disable Internet Explorer altogether
    Better as in more lag and crashes? Because that's what I get.


    To the OP: Have you tried TPL? Those long running scripts might be adverts.

    Switch if you have to but try to clear the browser cache and do a browser reset. Don't forget that after the reset you go into "manage add-ons" and re-enable them.
    Laura Knotek and xandros9 like this.

    Interestingly, it seems to vary.

    I have an old laptop with 8.1, and IE on that is very finicky, I often fall back on Firefox.
    On the Surface Pro however, IE flies and I never think about Firefox or Chrome.
    Weird.

    Admittedly though, the laptop developed some issues however, which I'll eventually have to tackle.
