Internet Explorer window is busy

Asked By 1200 points N/A Posted on -

Hi Guys, while I was using internet explorer to do some research, and suddenly in the middle of my browsing, an error message appeared on my screen: "the window is busy, closing this window might cause so problems".

Windows Internet Explorer

The window is busy.

Closing this window might cause so problems.

Do You want to close it anyway?

The pasted error message above will just pop up my screen at any time, that is why its very annoying, when I scanned my computer for some virus, a lot of virus found, but after the scan, the anti virus managed to removed all virus, and after which I tried again browsing the internet, the same error pops up my screen, please help me with this error, thanks.
