    I'm running WinXP and IE8. I've been getting the "secure connection" message
    a lot lately. It's showing up at a web sudoku site I've been using for
    years, and it's even appearing sometimes when I open IE to my ISP's home
    page. Any idea of why it's happening? (For what it's worth, I keep Avira
    AntiVir updated daily and scan once a week. I've also updated and scanned
    with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and SuperAntiSpyware. None of them found
    anything.

    Thank you!

    I've since discovered at least a couple more people with this problem, and
    it looks like it's related to Google advertising. On some websites, it
    occurs when "AdChoices" appears; and on others, individual ads show
    "googleleads" when you mouse over them. Any idea of what's going on and what
    can be done to stop it? The secure connection message is at the least
    annoying. I'm also concerned of course that it involves malware.

    Thank you!
