I am a new member. I am constantly receiving a "Security Warning" that says, "Do you want to view only the webpage content that was delivered securely? This webpage contains content that will not be delivered using a secure HTTPS connection, which could compromise the security of the entire webpage."
I am using Windows 7 and Internet Explorer 8. Do I need to change setting on either my firewall or my antivirus program?
hi theresa, go up and click on forums, it will take you to the page where you can see the search box in the upper right corner. type in security warning. click . the first post should tell you how to fix it. it starts out, internet explorer tools hope this works for you gini

Theresa, Every page on this site is https and so there fore you need to reset your security for in internet explorer.
1. On your page go to Tools - down at the bottom is Internet Options click the Security tab make sure that in " Select a zone.."window that Internet is selected
2 Click Custom level and scroll down about half way to "Display mixed content" in the Miscellaneous section. (it is a long list so keep scrolling down
3 Change it from Prompt to Enable.
4 Click O.K. and Yes and OK The change should take effect immediatly. .
these are the steps to take ... after you do this you should have no more pop ups on the pages.
Thanks Althea and Gini -- I knew there was a way to do this. Wonderful!

Many thanks to Althea & Gini for this information. I kept getting the security warning and never even thought to ask the question to see if it could be changed. I did the steps as you instructed, and poof, the warnings gone. You gals are so smart!
You are very welcome! I hope that any of the other new members will see this and follow the instructions! Every time we get new members we go through this... it is not a problem to help all of you though and hopefully you have a wonderful time here in QCA...
And not smart at all - just had Admin tell us how to do this months ago...teehee...
I got it foo the computer at work but can not get it off my lap top at home
Happy you should be able to - just follow the above steps - I took it off my laptop that way.
I jusr hit enter when the security warning pops up...too dangerous to leave my computer open to lurking hackers. At least I can try to keep viruses etc. away! JMHO!
Just as an FYI, we are working on a fix for this. At present, every single page in QCA is an https (secure) page vs http. So, when there is user posted content on an https page, Internet Explorer pops up that message. Our goal is get pages with user content back to http pages so this annoying pop up does not continue. A BIG BIG THANK YOU to our volunteer moderators who continue to alert folks of all these issues and provide some ideas for fixes along the way.
THANKS!! This has been driving me crazy! Carole
Thank you Althea! That security setting was so frustrating, your directions were wonderful ! ! perfect!!
Everyone is very welcome! We try to please at QCA!...teehee
I was also getting that security warning - on every page until one day it just quit coming on there, don't know why, but glad it's gone! I have been on here for hours at a time, trying to see all the forums, going from one to the other, and am now in the section where people report problems, etc. I almost have to laugh, altho I know it isn't funny at all when you're frustrated and not able to get to what you want. Mostly because I had some of the same issues so many others have, takes a while to figure it all out. I wonder if there is an easier way to get from one subject or forum to another, I just keep scrolling down and moving over so I can see all the posts. Then the next time I'm on, sometimes forget where I was if I don't put the last subject in Favorites, I can't get to it very easily. Also, once we figured out how to access QNNtv, videos, etc. will all have to be re-entered when we renew? Hope I can renew early enough to prevent missing any magazines or anything - this site has become such a favorite!!Thanks so much, Carol L
The same thing was happening with mine. Then about a month or so ago, I noticed it quit doing it. I was soooo glad that happened and keeps the frustration level down. Thanks Admin for taking care of it on mine.
