I'm not sure what is the problem with the script messeage, next time if it appears againg, get a piece of paper and write down the messeage and also what action you do before this messeage appears.

Now to make your computer to perform fast follow this steps:

-Make a scandisk in MSDOS startup, after you are in Full DOS mode, type scandisk c: or Scandisk /a if you have many partition.

-After scandisk, defragment your drive by typing defrag c: Althougth you can do this at windows mode but in SAFE MODE.

-Reboot and go to Safe mode by pressing F5 and make a cleanup disk, this will delete temporary files you can go to the run dialog box and type either tmp or temp, then delete any files that you see Empty your Recycle Bin.

-After this update your anitvirus and then make a full scan, also scan your BIOS with a antivirus bootable dis.

-Reduce your icons from the system tray, which is locate at the right side of the taskbar.

-Then reboot and start in MSDOS mode, and type scanreg /opt command.

Now to figure out the script problem, drwatson might help you start drwatson by typing his name at the run dialog box, and do whatever you do to make the script messeage to appear, after the message appear, then check drwatson to see the report by going to the folder \windows\drwatson\watsonXX.wlg (xx could be any number) and look the report and report this to Microsoft website at support.microsoft.com.
