    I get the same message after appling the settings. This message also started after installing a new router (D-Link).
    Restarted Internet Explorer as well…

    Hello Ken,

    I would try other security settings within Internet Explorer. Are you attempting to access the configuration page for the D-Link router? If not what site are you attempting to access? I might also verify that the IE setting in the article saved properly and see what other settings are configured regarding browsers on your computer. I would also try rebooting your desktop to see if that makes a difference after verifying the setting has saved. If none of these options resolve the issue please let us know what ends up resolving the problem so others might find the information useful.

    Thanks.

    It all worked fine until I installed a new new router (D-Link DIR-655 and also have an Apple Time Capsule which does not make any difference). IE setting adapted accordingly, but no improvement.
    While working directly on my cable modem, without any router, works ok and does not result in these messages.

    Hello Gerard,

    It sounds as though on the D-Link router there must be a Firewall or some form of packet inspection that also needs to be modified. Keep in mind that it is not secure unless you are familiar with the site and what outside domain it is redirecting you to.

    Thanks.

    In addition – the message pops up even if no file or website is opened.

    Hello Gerard,

    This could indicate some form of virus or malware. I would suggest investigating further.

    Thanks.
