Windows 7: Annoying HTTPS dialog

Annoying HTTPS dialog

I'm using Windows 7 and IE8. Lately, I've been getting this annoying dialog box about viewing the page securely:
http://i30.tinypic.com/2h34u2v.jpg

I always choose "No".
In my settings, I have "Don't always use https" selected.

Is there a way to stop this dialog from appearing?

You can reset the security zone settings to default, and the advanced settings reset to default

I believe the problem is on the website, not your PC.

Go to cedarpc.com to see it on every page change. Go to tfcnow.com to see it sometimes. Go somewhere else and see it never.

No it is not a bug, IE is doing the correct behavior. Connecting to a website using SSL encrypts the connection, however say the author of the page is then connecting to a resource like an image that is not using SSL. The secure connection to the page is compromised because part of the page is not being handled in a secure way (i.e. not encrypted).

Well, I hate it, so can you tell me how to stop it from ever appearing?

Try enabling mixed content.

Internet options -> security tab -> custom level button -> Display mixed content
