How to Disable the IE 8 Security Warning

Internet Explorer 8 displays a security warning box when you're on a secure, HTTPS-protocol-using website that at temps to load non-secure content over the HTTP protocol. HTTPS content is encrypted so no one can snoop on your personal information, but HTTP is not. HTTP content on an HTTPS website can cause sensitive information such as credit card numbers to be sent unencrypted, so IE 8 displays a security warning. If you realize the risks and don't want to see this error message every time a website loads non-secure content on a secure Web page, you can disable the security warning.
