Do you have https: at the beginning of the addresses?

If not, change it.

Hyper Text Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS) is the secure version of HTTP, the protocol over which data is sent between your browser and the website that you are connected to. The 'S' at the end of HTTPS stands for 'Secure'. It means all communications between your browser and the website are encrypted. HTTPS is often used to protect highly confidential online transactions like online banking and online shopping order forms.
Web browsers such as Internet Explorer, Firefox and Chrome also display a padlock icon in the address bar to visually indicate that a HTTPS connection is in effect.

what antivirus are you using?
Which sites is this happening in? Is it all sites or only 1 or 2
If only 1 or 2 then please give the link to the sites so we can see what might be wrong.

see if this helps
disable scanning of TSL/SSL traffic:
Open AVG and click "Options" -> "Advanced Settings" -> "Web Browsing Protection" -> "Online Shield" -> "Expert Settings" Uncheck "Scan encrypted (TLS and SSL) network traffic" option.
