security warning

Hello, when browsing certain websites i often get an annoying warning pop up box which says some of the content is not secure and do i want to only download the secure content which whatever option i choose seems to make no difference, is there a way to stop this persistent little box from appearing. Regards keith.

Welcome

Run an antivirus scan

Download and run malwarebytes, they will be gone

If, however, you are going to sites that are creating and giving you the popus, your remedies are rather limited as they are coming from your own computer security.

I think it has to do with your browser's security settings. If you lower the security settings, I think they'll go away--but you might make your browser a little more unsecure.

Open your security settings from the menu (or double-click on Protected Mode: On from the bottom taskbar) and change your settings to allow non-protected media to be displayed on a secure socket.

Enabling mixed content fixes this.

Win 7 Security Warning?
Hi, I was browsing a webpage and got a security warning pop-up box. A screen shot of the pop-up is attached. Is this a Win 7 security warning? I don't think it's an ESET Smart Security 7 security warning. I suspect it's a malware trick. Thank you for your assistance. Regards
