IE has modified this page to help provent cross site scripting.

Any way to get rid of this nuisance?
NEVER seen this message EVER on IE and Yahoo Finance.

I can click on the X to close it, but when I go back to the page I was on, it pops up again.

    This error occurs if “Cross-site Scripting (XSS) Filter” is enabled in Internet Explorer.
    I would suggest you to disable this feature by following the steps mentioned below and then check if the issue is fixed.
    a.     Open Internet Explorer.
    b.     Click on Tools and then on Internet Options.
    c.     Switch to Security tab.
    d.     Select Internet Zone.
    e.     Click on Custom Level.
    f.      Under Scripting, select the radio button “Disable” under Enable XSS filter.
    g.     Save the changes by clicking on OK.
    Now try the page again.
    Additional information:
    The XSS Filter monitors all requests and responses flowing through the browser. When the filter detects script in a cross-site request, it identifies and disables the script if it is replayed in the server's response. When this happens, a "Internet Explorer modified this page to prevent a potential cross-site scripting attack" message is displayed.
    Hope this information is helpful and let me know if you need any further assistance.
