Keep getting this annopying pop-up

I don't know what is going on, but latterly, it seems when ever I go on this website, I get the message that something is posing a security risk of some sorts. How do I eliminate this? It started out only on this forum, but lately, it's beginning to show up on others too.
Running Windows 7 Professional....that's about all I know.....I'll try to attach a screen shot of the message.

You may want to run Malwarebytes, adwarecleaner and the root kit checker. I had done it on my Windows7 when things started getting wonky with the Google browser.
https://www.malwarebytes.com and load the malwarebytes, then go to the bottom of the page where they have more options and load the adwarecleaner and junk removal tool.
Then get the anti-root kit from here: https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/dow.../anti-rootkit/
Scan and clean the entire system and it should find something.
Then I got disgusted with Chrome and replaced it with Opera.

@Steve F are you still getting this warning while accessing the site? It could have something to do with the site not being HTTPS, but that doesn't look like the regular warning.

I'm getting the same thing on other sites too, and I did a MICROSOFT security full scan last night, and it found nothing (took over 9 hours and scanned about 1.8 million files). I did the usual "Allow display of mixed content" checkbox, made no difference.
I don't know, maybe need a pro to take a look at this machine (company laptop that I use on vacation as well). It functions OK, but you just gotta wonder what's going on........

Hey Steve F,

It is a different wording on the typical warning many sites are receiving a prompt on different browsers in regards to the site being not secure and that it's lacking SSL/HTTPS.

This is the situation in a nutshell: the gap in security your browser is pointing out is common on most sites, but Google/Firefox/IE decided to start highlighting it now. It's telling you that the site is vulnerable to a MIM attack (or Man in the Middle), where someone intercepts what you are typing on the site. Since everything you type here can be viewed by all, this has never been a thing it made sense to protect against. As long as you aren't typing your password or banking info (anything confidential) into a thread in plain text, this does't affect you. That said, we are going to be upgrading all our networks over the coming months (bear with us) to HTTPS to make our pages more secure.

Let us know if that helps clarify the situation and/or if you need further assistance. Otherwise, thank you for your patience and understanding on this matter

Cheers,
Natalie
