This started suddenly a few minutes ago: when I go to a page, sometimes I'll get this screen.

I also sometimes get a box on my screen that says McAfee wants me to authenticate, with a box below. However, even if I had the information, I wouldn't put it into something like that- feels fishy to me. Even if it is McAfee, I think something is off here. Is this a common error, or is it just me?
Any help would be appreciated!
ETA: Here's a cap of the box.

ETA 2: I *think* I got it fixed.

Hi -
Would you mind sharing the "solution" that may have worked ??
I know McAfee is a bit quirky with some sites, but is this your only Antivirus program, or just the sites you were visiting ??

Thank You -

I had to disable McAfee Web Security. I assume that was the cause, rather than the sites I was visiting, since I haven't gotten an error since disabling it.
