Windows 7: Unidentified program running on my laptop is very annoying

Unidentified program running on my laptop is very annoying

A program has started running on my computer that shows up whenever I go to any website. At the task-bar area of my laptop, there is a bar that starts with a white circle with a blue S in the middle. It has to do with monitoring scripts on the site. In the right corner of this task-bar is a button labeled OPTIONS. When I click on it, a long menu comes up asking me to choose how or if I want to run scripts on this site, eg. temporarily allow, not allow, globally allow (dangerous), revoke temporary permissions, allow, etc. I have never had this before, until yesterday when I had to do a windows system repair (using windows built-in repair when there's a problem). It seems to be something that is trying to protect me, but why now? I have had this laptop for several years and it is just now appearing. If I don't make the proper selections for the website, some things don't show up...just leave blank spaces on the website. I don't want this running, but how do I stop it when I can't find out what it is. Nothing new shows under programs, so it must be something in windows that's always been there but never activated. I need help identifying it and stopping it.

Welcome to the Seven Forums

Are you using FireFox? What you have described sounds like a extension called NoScript, it can be disabled or removed by going to Tools> Add-ons and then located it and disable or remove it and then restart Firefox

Many thanks for immediate resolution of my problem!!! You hit the nail right square on the head with your answer. Great Job! It was the Firefox Add on, as you said, but I have no idea how it got added on, as I certainly didn't do it.
