All computers on domain have a IE popup "Your current security settings put your computer at risk"

Is there a way to fix this through group policy and if so what should I look for? No matter what happens the next time the user logs on it shows the same thing.

Do you define your Internet security settings in Group Policy?  If so, that is probably what is causing the error.

btpringle is right.  This typically points to one or a combination of these three items being disabled:

1.  Windows Firewall
2.  Automatic Updates
3.  Antivirus Software

I would see if one of three has been updated or uninstalled recently (and why).

I believe it is done through group policy.  When IE is opened, it comes to a page that says about:blank and a bar with the error on it. I am in group policy now but cant see where it configures internet security settings. If I can find it, I can disable it.

 \User Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Internet Explorer\Security Features.

I do not see anything enabled...

Try setting the level by Group Policy to see if the message goes away.  You can even set it to "Medium" if you want.  If I remember correctly, the workstations will stop complaining if the setting is coming from Group Policy.

For example, all of the computers are set to "Low" security for the Intranet, which would usually cause that message.  However, since it is assigned through Group Policy, we never see that message.
