I have a question about something. At the recommendation of a very helpful poster on here - m0le - I've uninstalled AVG Free 2011 and in its place I've installed Avast, and I also now have a program called SUPERAntiSpyware. The thing is that now when I log into a site, e.g. my emails, I get a message box headed 'Security Alert', with a message that reads: 'You are about to view pages over a secure connection. Any information you exchange with this site cannot be viewed by anyone else on the web'. I click OK, and then I get a second Security Alert box, with the quite contradictory message: 'You are about to leave a secure Internet connection. It will be possible for others to view information you send. Do you want to continue?' I always press 'Yes' anyway, but I was wondering if there's any kind of security problem with my laptop; after all, I never got these kind of messages when I had AVG. Does this mean that my computer is now less secure with Avast than it was with AVG?
It's probably nothing really, but I just wondered what this message means and what the implications are. Any answers would be much appreciated - cheers!
