Looks like a standard anti-malware popup to me. If so, it's there to protect you against what your anti-virus program (or Facebook) deems a possible threat to your system. You should be able to turn it off merely by clicking on it and selecting the option to do so. There may even be an option to permanently prevent the yellow bar from showing up.

Alternatively, you can reduce your security level or allow pop ups --- but I don't think you really want to do that!

I honestly would not trust it. I would also check to make sure your Flash player is up to date as they may have updated the game.

If you can still play without downloading the file I would Highly suggest it. If it is only on one game or a set of games by one developer I would suggest checking the games pages to see if other people have been experiencing the same issue. Maybe even try in a differnt browser, just to see if the issue is strictly IE related.
