How to stop this message from Internet Explorer?

I guess some Windows update has caused this.
I'm getting this message on most sites and it started yesterday.
It's a pest, is there a way to stop these messages?
See the bottom of the screen shot.
IE 9.0.
Also, I'm getting a popup message from IE (or Windows) when visiting www dot politico dot com.
So, either that site just started popups today (which is highly unlikely)
or suddenly IE or Windows is not blocking them, and I get a message to allow or disallow the popup.

Thanks.ff

The message is even being shown on Hotmail, a Microsoft product.

I was thinking maybe these sites needed to be added as trusted sites in "security" tab.(?)

The advice in your link was not to disable the feature.

Well, it is something new, over the last few days.
It popped up occasionally, but now on many of the same sites where it did not, even Hotmail.

I've tried this and will see what happens:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The following worked for Mr. ------:
 Go to Internet Options > Advanced, and uncheck "Warn about certificate address mismatch". It is the 3rd option form the bottom of the list of options in the Advanced category.

The solution from the above link, ID: 37807167, has proved effective.
I do not know the long term negatives of it, though.

nobus: I had no add-ons.
Red_Tech: That link you gave advises "against" disabling.

The message is gone, and MSE and Malwarebytes are not catching anything.

So maybe the action taken from comment 37807167 to remove that security alert, seems fine for the low risk websites I use.
