Original Title: IE10 - Long Running Script Error

 

When I go to one particular website it loads ok but then the page freezes and I get a notification that "bbc.co.uk is not responding due to a long running script" so I have to close Explorer and reopen it. I've disabled Script Debugging and turned off notifications but to no avail.

 

Any ideas anyone?
