I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Most likely you have a  virus or some adware/spyware. I would recommend that you perform a full virus scan using your antivirus software. If you dont have antivirus software you can get AVG for free from http://free.avg.com/ . You may also want to do a scan with AdAware (http://www.lavasoft.com/products/ad_aware_free.php ) and spybot (http://www.safer-networking.org/en/index.html ).
This should hopefully help you get rid of what is causing this. Good luck.

It is a general pop-up due to Internet Explorer security settings. When does the pop-up show ? For example opening certain websites or at random ? If at random, andrew_aj1 is right. If not at random but from certain websites or applications adjust the IE security settings:
Tools -> Internet Options -> Advance -> Scroll to the bottom -> you see options for three warnings there....

Tools -> popup blocker -> popup blocker settings -> 2 checkmarks there

addendum: if it's this warning: http://www.ssl247.com/ssl-certificate-support/128-bit-SSL-certificates.php when opening a ssl website (address starts with https:// , just click the checkbox and Yes.
