It sounds virus related.

1. Go to "Internet Options" inside of IE.
2. Go to the Advanced Tab.
3. Click the Restore Advanced Settings.
4. Close IE and re-open it.

If that doesn't work:
1. Go to "Internet Options" inside of IE.
2. Go to the Advanced Tab.
3. Click "Reset.."
4. Close IE and re-open it.

If that doesn't work I would download ComboFix from:

and run it.

Are the pages encrypted (show the lock) up above?  If so, it is a security setting in Internet Options.

If the pages are not encrypted, you may have a browser helper object or browser hijack that is preventing you from leaving pages.  

Try resetting Internet Explorer.

1. Go to the "Tools" menu (the gear)
2. Click "Internet Options"
3. Click the "Advanced" tab at the top
4. Click the "Reset" button at the bottom
5. Check all of the checkboxes and click "Reset".
6. Reset IE.

Does it work now?

This is not really a part of IE.  It is code on the webpage that you are browsing.

Depending on the Page, you may be able to do disable it, by disabling Javascript, and or ActiveX, but if you do that, you may well have unintended consequences on other pages you visit.  

(other pages may not display properly).

To disable :

Go to internet options / Security / Custom Level

Scroll down to "Active Scripting" and choose disable.

Within the same menu you can do the same for ActiveX controls and Plug-ins.  What you need to disable will depend on what controls the sites you are visiting uses.

@butttersk is right, that is normally javascript code on the web page.  If you really are getting it on All pages, then it would be malware in your computer.  Do you get that message here on EE?

This is caused by a recent Windows Update (KB2846071).
