This windows 'pop up' is driving me crazy. I took my computer to a computer doctor...and he couldn't/didn't fix it.

Bascially...
EVERY website that I surf to which has 'https:' in web address triggers that windows security pop up....'Security Warning: Do you want the view only the webpage content that was delivered securely?' Anyhow... this pop up comes up EVERYTIME when I visit a website with this 'https' in the web address and EVERY page of that particular website. So... I need to 'click' the 'close' link to get the pop up off EVERYTIME I surf around the site. It's driving me crazy and I can't fix it (neither could my computer doctor).

Can ANYONE help me with this problem.

This problem started about 2 months ago. I thought it was a 'virus' that infected my computer. My computer doctor didn't find any viruses but had to remove 'malware'.

I use windows visa home premium and Norton antivirus 2011.

The first thing that would worry me about your setup is that you have Norton A/V. I, and numerous other people, have had untold amounts of trouble using this software.

A suggestion to address your problem: What is the security level setting in your browser? Most people manage with it set at Medium/medium high. Check the level in yours. (In IE go to Tools -> Internet Options -> Security. Most other browsers have similar facilities).

You might also run an online scan with something such as http://housecall.trendmicro.com/uk/ (it is free for home use).

Norton is one of the most troublesome programs available. When I eventually decided to get rid of it , I had to reinstall Windows to finally clear out all the dross. I agree with pops 100%.

Thank you for the advice. My security setting is at 'med/high'. I ran the 'housecall' online scan and no luck... the pop up is still here....driving me crazy.

Everyone has their favourites. Norton in used by a lot of people because they buy commercial computers with it included. The manufacturers are paid handsomely for this. Norton is also sold by the big computer chains such as P.C.World etc. Many people use free programs, others prefer paid for programs. Having tried several of the free ones I have stuck for several years with Nod 32 full security suite by ESET. This is very reasonably priced and help is available on line or by telephone in the UK. You may however have problems in getting rid of Norton completely without a format and re installation of Windows. Look on their website for removal tools and have a go, and the best of luck.

The final choice is yours.

Availabe here, or you can try it for free for 30 days.

I did as you requested.... and it didn't work. I'm really getting discouraged.

But thanks for your help.

It DID WORK!!!!! Yipee! I, at first, selected the wrong section. So please disregard my previous 'it didn't work' comment.

THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH!
