    https securtiy warning in internet explorer

    i am getting security alert from microsot internet explorer.
    when i click on image icon,which will open a new window.

    message which i get is

    Do you want to view only the webpage content that was deliverd securely?
    This webpage contains content that will not be delivered using a secure HTTPS connection,which could compermise the security of the entire webpage.

    YES NO



    Actualy my application is on https//.... which will call http://...
    because of that i get this issue.
    i know i can bypass this with doing some settings in internet explorer.
    But my client wants me to do through java script coding so that they could not see this message at all.

    Please give suggestions.

    Thanks in Advance !!

    This is a security setting in the browser which only the user can change. JavaScript has no capability to access the client's operating system or the Windows registry, or alter the default behaviour of the browser.

    IE8 has defaulted to prompt the user for the next course of action when encountering mixed content as displaying mixed content carries the risk that the non-secure web page or script will be able to access information from the secure content. You should accept mixed content only from sites which you have confidence in.

    All the code given in this post has been tested and is intended to address the question asked.
    Unless stated otherwise it is not just a demonstration.
