This problem occurs when an 'https' (secure encryption) site includes 'http' content (non-secure). In this case, it is because Ghana Place Names is hosted by https://sites.google.com/ and information is being downloaded from http://flagcounter.com/. To avoid seeing these messages again from this and similar websites, follow these steps:

1. Visit FLAGcounter.com to assure yourself that it is a trustworthy site.
2. In Internet Explorer, go to Tools > Internet Options.
3. Select the 'Security' tab and then click on the 'Custom Level' button.
4. Scroll down until you see the option, under Miscellaneous: 'Display mixed content'. Select 'Enable'.
5. Click 'OK'. Then you will get a 'Warning!' pop-up. Click 'Yes'.
6. Close 'Internet Options' by clicking 'OK'.
