I keep getting the following tab page which opens about every 3rd time of so I go to a new site or even if it’s one of my favorites.
Reported Internet Insecurity: Navigation Blocked

Continue to this website unprotected (not recommended).
Nothing happens when I select continue to website, but when I go back it takes me to my previous page?
Is this generated by Microsoft? It seems like they are trying to sell you this internet security s/w package.
How do I get rid of this pop up???
I saw that popup this evening on my girlfriend’s laptop. Avast said the program (or a module) was viral. I uninstalled the software and had to do a reboot and complete virus scan to remove traces of it. Still get the popup, but I can access the homepage now just by clicking the back button (shouldn’t have to do this, though).
To Hairyuy: an uninvited “security” window popping up is not from Microsoft, and is not normal. What firewall, AV, and other security software do you have on hand? See the above link for links to SUPERAntiSpy and Malwarebytes. If you need assistance check back here–there are people here that will help.
Make sure both programs are fully updated. Then reboot into safe mode, By pressing “f8” on the keyboard until you get to the Black config Screen for Safe Mode. Run both Scans in that mode (But don’t run them both at the same time), Remove the threats found and reboot in normal mode.
