Is it for every single web site or just certain ones? If it's just certain ones, they were probably setup to display that message. It generally happens on "less than respectable" sites. I suggest you get decent AV protection. AVAST recently bought AVG so there's no telling what's gonna happen there. I recommend BitDefender Free Edition.

"Yes in all browsers"

If you have Java installed, uninstall it using Geek & test.

Very few people need Java.

Geek Uninstaller
Just Double click on the program you want to uninstall.

Sometimes that's malware related. You might want to run something like malwarebytes:


The legitimate message can be disabled. The method varies with the browser. This seems to work for firefox:


There's more info if you google "are you sure you want to leave this page" disable

If by any chance, like me, you need Java for some offline program then you can disable it in browsers instead like this:
Control Panel > Java icon > Security tab > uncheck "Enable Java content in the browser".

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Firefox allows you to set addons to "Ask before Activating" which allows you to keep it installed but not use it unless needed. I recently had to do this with Flash player to prevent occasional freezing of the browser due to new types of ads. coming through.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

I use to have that kind of message before even in my mobile phone. I just ignore it, If I can't delete the box I close the browser or restart the pc/mobile.
