Question VB3 Using Too Many CPU Resources? Help..

Hey guys, was wondering if you could give me some advice/suggestions/input.

I run a VB 3.8.4 forum on shared hosting, and lately the host has been suspending me because the forum uses too many CPU resources. They said it shows a lot of 'redirects' and possibly outdated Javascript that could be the causes. I don't have a lot of plugins, just a few. I really don't know anything about this stuff. I know basic forum stuff, none of the backend of how it works, etc.

My question is, does this sound possible? Is there a way to update Javascript for the forum? What exactly are 'redirects?' Any other ways I can improve this forum (short of upgrading to a newer version of VB) so it won't keep getting suspended? I can't keep having my forum down so much, it gets some good activity. I can't afford a dedicated server, as it doesn't make me much money.

Thanks so much for any help you can give, I really am clueless to this stuff!
