Unwanted Security Warning


J

John Miller

Every time a web page attempts to open a site in my trusted sites list, I get a security warning that says, "The current web page is trying to open a site in your Trusted sites list. Do you want to allow this? etc." Is there a way to turn this off for specific sites? The "current web page" referenced by the error message is also in my trusted sites list.

Hi John :)

You may have installed some third party Anti-Spam or Internet Security
software which increased the security alert. If so, disable or uninstall
the software temporarily to see if the problem persists.

If you have installed any 3rd party toolbars such as Google or Yahoo, or
Yahoo companion, or popup blockers, disable them.

Take a look at the information here:

Security Warning appears when you try to navigate to a Trusted site from a

Hope this helps.
