    I've noticed that just over the last two weeks or so, whenever I use the Google search, I get both a Security Warning pop-up window stating that the "website contains content that will not be delivered using a secure HTTPS connection" AND an information bar at the top that states IE [8] has "restricted this webpage from running scripts or ActiveX controls that could access your computer." After I click out of both of these and STAY in that window for any additional searches, I can search all day long without these ever bothering me again, but I have NEVER had this problem before and I have used Google often and for years for my jobe. I do wonder if it could be related to any recent Window Updates that have been done. It's such an annoyance to have to deal with this because I rely on Google all day long for my employment. Any suggestions to solve this would be so appreciated. Thanks.

    P.S. This same problem is happening on both home computers (the desktop and my laptop).
