Hi cmac58,

Thank you for using Vista Support forum,

What were you doing when you receive the message?
Is this a home computer or work computer? Does it connect to a network with a server/domain?

What is the operating system? XP or Vista? 32 bit or 64 bit?

What version of Internet Explorer are you using?

Are you running any antivirus/antimalware program on your computer? Are they up to date?

Did you install updates available from Windows Update?

You can try to reset your IE to see if it will help or run IE without addons.
