Every time I click onto another webpage. It also warns that I am connecting to a secure internet connection as well. It gives me the option to not be warned next time. I just don't know what makes a webpage a secure or unsecure connection. MS advises to just block all the webpages that have the unsecure connection warnings, but I could be blocking webpages until eternity.

Absolutely normal. I had the same "issue" on my old XP machine and I had to live with that...

51a5ce45263de-delfix.png Clean with DelFix

Please download DelFix by Xplode and save it to your desktop.

  • Right-click on 51a5ce45263de-delfix.png icon and select RunAsAdmin.jpg Run as Administrator to start the tool.
  • Ensure that Remove disinfection tools, Purge system restore and Reset system settings are checked.
  • Push Run.
  • When finished, it will display a notepad report.

Include it for my review.
Please also manually reboot your machine after posting your logfile.
