Windows 7: security warning popup on webpages

security warning popup on webpages

Hi:
I've got an annoying popup that comes up whenever I access a webpage (for instance, Walmart or Kmart). I can't seem to find out how to get rid of it. Here's the popup:
Security Warning

Do you want to view only the webpage content that was delivered securely?

This webpage contains content that will not be delivered using a secure HTTPS connection, which could compromise the security of the entire webpage.

More info yes no

Even if I answer yes (or no) and then click on the next page, it comes up again.

I'm running Windows 7 Pro on a HP Compaq 6005 Pro MT PC, 32 bit with IE8 as a browser.

Thanks
Baron7

Ace, I don't know know how to do that, sorry.

Carolyn: Yes, I tried that already, but that box is NOT marked. That's where I thought I could change it too, but it doesn't work.

Thanks

Hey, Carolyn, that worked,hahaha

Borg 386, I tried cleaning out the cache and history and it still didn't work, but when I enabled mixed content like Carolyn said, the popup is gone.

Thank you ALL so much. I know it's a small thing, but something like that can be terribly frustrating.

Now I can go spend my SS check at Walmart

Have a nice day y'all.
