Windows 7: Security warning annoyance.

Security warning annoyance.

Hi folks. I am using IE8 and keep getting a Security Warning pop-up on https sites. The message says: "Do you want to view only the webpage content that was delivered securely?"

Now this warning used to only pop up once while signing in to certain https sites, I would click Yes as I only want secure content and it would remember, (Which didn't bother me as it would remember that setting for that site during that session),but now every time a new page pops up the Warning pops up again as if it is not remembering what I put. This is becoming annoying.

I've noticed in Internet Explorer Security settings there is a mixed content section. To have only secure content displayed during https do I need to select Enabled or Disabled?

In Internet Options, open the 'Advanced' tab. Do you have the box checked that says to "warn if changing" between secure and not secure mode? (scroll to the bottom)

No Jacee, that box is not checked. I selected Disable in Display Mixed Content and no longer get the annoying warnings. I assume that elements that are insecure on a secure web page will be blocked, which is what I want.

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
