I'm looking for a program that will automatically click on the button of a popup when a website brings up a popup like the popup image below, without having to know the exact coordinates of the popup. In the case of the image below, I think that I specifically need to auto click 'cancel' button

I'm not sure if that is possible.

More importantly, from a security standpoint, that seems like a bad idea.  Popups like that exist to stop the normal flow that a user is going through in order to warn them that they are about to do something potentially unsafe or against the system's security policy.

If you are really looking to do this for a specific set of systems, then it would make more sense to modify the security policy on those systems in order to prevent the popup in the first place.  This could be done by adding some kind of exception for the systems in question.

However, the better approach (if possible) would be to fix the server that you are trying to access.  It is not configured securely, as indicated in the popup message.  Changing the server's configuration would probably remove the popup completely.

Generically suppressing or skipping popups is way too easy to abuse and can lead to serious security issues.
