Grams, it would help if you could write down exactly what the message says and then type it here. I am suspecting something like an anti-virus program might be sending those. Your computer may no longer be protected by an adequate anti-virus program.

I opened   

The most Christian Nation

and got this....

Excuse my  spelling and trying to make this short.

It said....

Security Alert


first one  .. was.

The security certification  is from a trusted  authority

The second one said...

the security certificate date is  void

the last one said

The name of the security certificate is invalid or does not match the name of
the site.

Do you want to proceed ? 

Yes          NO           View Certificate   


And I had to keep clicking it off over an over again........... and again.......

Grams, it sounds like some sort of virus or firewall issue with your computer. Maybe someone more savvy with those type things than me can help you.

It just does not make sense?   Since it only happens at this forum.

I have gone to  a few others and  no problem there.............. ?

For some reason your browser seems to think that the security certificate for this site has expired or for some other reason become invalid.

I just logged out and back in to test it, and I don't get any warning, so I don't think the problem is with the site itself.

I'm afraid I'm not knowledgeable enough to offer troubleshooting suggestions.

Your browser is the software that you use to access the Web.  If you are using a desktop or laptop computer and are using the default installed software, your browser is most likely Internet Explorer.  (On this laptop, I am using Pale Moon as my browser.)

If you are using a "mobile device" (smart-phone, etc.), then I have much less idea what's going on.  I still only use a land-line.   ::tippinghat::

That is your ISP (Internet Service Provider).

grams, I use ATT and sometimes the same thing happens for me when I open Internet Explorer browser to ATT's own home page.   It's a message about a security certificate for some page that "wants" to open up.  Does the message about ordering from Amazon.Com through the link that pops-up here show-up?  Internet Explorer is not recognizing some pop-up as secure.  I suggest that you just ignore it, or that you try another browser, like Mozilla's Firefox.  It's not going to do any damage to your computer or operating software.   

If you're not real computer savvy do you have a friend or family member who can help you do this?   If you download a new browser like Firefox you'll be hit with questions about setting up a home page and transferring Favorites from Internet Explorer, etc.  It's not a problem for someone with experience with such things.

Long story.....

I know nothing about computers.  My husband  is gone I am living  with my son and
his wife and  8 children.

He is bringing them up with hating to use the computer........ 
They steal from you all they can.      Not the children

any way this is my only communication........  I am bad on the phone
my brain is down now at 81.......
I am living longer then I should.....  I should be home with my husband.

Yes  about  Amazon.com.

I am supposed to get a new computer..... Only thing is  before my husband passed
we used money to  build  up this house.  and more to come.
So the computer is down on the list?   and a lot of problems.  here and there...

I want to go home  !   Be with my Husband...........
