You'll have to give a specific example.  That in the past has come from pages that include both secure (https) and insecure (http) content.  You usually have to click to allow the insecure content.

That message should only show up on pages that mix both secure and insecure content, and that usually only happens on websites that you connect to using HTTPS. If it truly happens on every single website, then your IE settings somehow got messed up, and you can reset them by going into Tools-->Options-->Advanced Tab-->Reset

And just a suggestion -- switch to a different browser instead of IE. Both Chrome and Firefox are by far more secure and less problematic. Chrome is the fastest and Firefox is the most stable of the bunch.
