the web page has code that closes the window; has nothing to do with the browser
Is this happening on all websites or just one?  If one, that page contains java script to activate that message.  
1) Run IE with no add-ons.  Start|iexplore -extoff  
If that fixes things one of the add-ons is causing the message.  Now you have to find out which add-on.
2) IE Tools|Delete browser cache (temp files, cookies and browsing history ).

We’d all like to think our company’s data is well protected, but when you ask IT professionals they admit the data probably is not as safe as it could be.

Finally found a way around the problem.  Answers by the experts did not work.

you found a way around the issue with that one site
as i stated, this is code within a web page that causes that message; has nothing to do with the browser
you will find other sites that do this.  doesn't matter if you use IE, chrome, firefox, safari or something else; other sites will do the same thing with that same prompt.  i admit i have only been using web browsers and the internet for about 21 years (since IE 3) but i have learned a few things over the last couple decades about how this technology works

I certainly did not mean to offend anyone, however, when using a slightly different url address to open the web page the page worked as expected like the web page works on all or our other computers.  Whether it is a condition with the browser or the web page, the solution was found.

Slightly different url means you had the original url wrong. Glad you got it fixed!
