    error message.GIF Since installing IE 9, I get this pop up on the majority of pages I visit. Could someone please tell me what it's warning about, and if I can turn it off?

    You will have to click 'Whats the Risk' link in the pop up. It can be turned off but I would just ignore it.

    fbob,

    You should only get this message if you are at a secure site {HTTPS}. The message is informing you that some of the content on the page comes from a non-secure site and therefore is at risk of compromise. This is especially important if the site is a financial one, e.g. Bank, Credit Card, Mutual Fund, etc. IE by default blocks the non-secure content for your protection.
    May the Forces of good computing be with you!

    Perhaps Internet Options, Security. Add the sites visited often to Trusted Sites. Not sure if this would do it without shutting off. As RG states this could be important.

    I believe unchecking the Enable Protected Sites may turn this feature off, but it is a security feature.

    If you don't want the warning when you get insecure content included at a secure site, then change Internet Options, Security, Internet, Custom Level, Miscellaneous, Display mixed content; from Prompt to Enable.

    Bruce, I have this set to Enable and still get the notice when going to certain sites. This appears to not be 100% fix.

    You would need to repeat that Internet zone setting in the Local, Trusted and Restricted zones if you never want the mixed content warning.
