What does the security alert message say?

Is this something that's appearing when you attempt to connect or simply when you load up IE/Firefox?

If you're getting it when opening a browser, I'd be tempted to say that it's some kind of virus or malware. Scan your computer and see if it gets picked up. Otherwise you may be looking at an issue with a firewall. Do you have an anti-virus program installed?
