What does this pop up message mean?

For several days now I continue to get this pop up window on my screen when I'm at DC:

"The current webpage is trying to open a site in your Trusted sites list. Do you want to allow this?

current site: {there is an http:// in front of}content.pulse360.com
Trusted site: {there is a res:// in front of}ieframe.dll

yes no"

Every time I change pages, this message appears.
Can anyone explain? TIA!

Pulse 360 is a survey site that may have been contracted by our host.

Thank you for your reply, BD. I continue to say "no" when the window appears. Is there potential harm to my computer if I answer "yes?" And if I answer yes, will the pop ups stop? If I persist in saying no, will it ever go away ??

>>any danger

yes and no.

sites like this are supported by advertising.

problem: links to advertising are not always trustworthy. some are intentionally bad (malware, etc) others get hacked. anytime you get 'convinced' to 'click' on some popup, you should be especially suspicious - the obvious "enter your user name and password" tricks are obvious, stuff like "you must update your Flash Player to view this site" are not so obvious but just as nasty.

a pop-up blocker is usually effective on such things.

you can block pop-ups in your preferences (not sure where, but it's there somewhere)

I think this is being caused by an ad network that we work with. I am going to send them a link to this discussion right now. Sorry about the issues.
