Hello, I have a Dell Dimension 3000 running Windows XP, and every time I open a webpage lately I've been getting the following security warning:

 

This website contains content that will not be delivered using a secure HTTPS connection which could compromise the security of the entire webpage.

 

Then it gives me the choice: Do you want to view only the content that has been delivered securely...yes or no.

 

I have installed all the latest updates pertaining to security issues, but nothing seems to make it go away; it keeps coming up everytime I go to my email or homepage, or anywhere else...annoying!

 

Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

Hi -

Download Security Check by Screen317 from HERE or HERE, and save it to your Desktop.
* Double-click SecurityCheck.exe
* Follow the onscreen instructions inside of the black box.
* A Notepad document should open automatically called checkup.txt; please post the contents of that document.
Note: If a security program requests permission to access the Internet, allow it to do so.

 

Thank You -

Hi -

There is nothing obvious in that reply to show any problem with connections / programs being blocked.

 

If you are very concerned or wish to review it further, I would say to open a new topic in Am I Infected area of the forum

That area will give your computer basic checks for any security issues -

 

Thank You -

P.S. Only observation - Total Fragmentation on Drive C:: 12% Defragment your hard drive soon! (Do NOT defrag if SSD!)

OK, thanks...I did defragment the drive as suggested, but it didn't change anything.

 

I think I will repost on " am I infected " and see what they can come up with.

 

Thanks for taking time to help me out on this.

The problem seems to be an IE browser security setting http://www.mydigitallife.info/disable-display-only-webpage-content-delivered-securely-security-warning-in-ie/

This is normal behavior for Internet Explorer, it doesn't mean your machine is not up to date or infected.

 

You are visiting a website via HTTPS (e.g. securely encrypted), but not all of the elements from the page that are about to be displayed were downloaded via HTTPS, some of the elements were also downloaded via HTTP. This happens often with ads. The website you visit uses HTTPS, but the ads it displays use HTTP.

 

As jhayz wrote, you can change this behavior.
