Few Questions

What is wrong with my Windows 7? I use a laptop and have Microsoft Security Essentials as the anti-virus. I get such dialog box when I try to access any program using the shortcut from the dock.

That looks more like a message from the firewall and not MSE. Unfortunately I do not have either, so I cannot check it, next time you get the message, check from where it comes. Here is how: Error Message - Where Does it Come From

It says "Your Internet security settings prevented one or more files from being opened" so I would start by checking in your Internet properties > Security tab to see what the settings are. I would maybe check the "Launching applications and unsafe files" option under both the Internet zone and Local intranet zone.

Also, you could just try resetting the Internet Explorer settings under the Advanced tab by clicking the Reset button at the bottom.

To get to Internet properties; go to Control Panel > Network and Internet > Internet Options
or if you have the Control Panel as a list view then it is just Control Panel > Internet Options

Have a look and see what your MSE settings are:

Also, are you using more than one firewall?
