Browser security issues

HP Recommended
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

This browser or app may not be secure.  [edit]Try using a different browser. If you’re already using a supported browser, you can refresh your screen and try again to sign in. I've reached out to Google about this on infinite occasions, without ever getting a response.  I received that message using a Chrome browser - so it makes me think that something is running on my desktop that is screwing things up.  In addition to the "browser may not be secure" message, I've received other messages indicating I might be using automation software (which I am not), or I get CAPTCHA screens that go on forever.   I've checked my Chrome settings and everything appears normal.  Any idea what is causing this?  Something to do with the OS, the desktop, or McAfee? Thanks!

If I may also ask, does this happen with every website you visit, or only certain ones?

If only certain ones, are they using the HTTP preface or HTTPS?


Example, Chrome doesn't give the warning if you visit the HP forum, but does give the warning if you visit a page like this one...
