Microsoft SmartScreen popup with dire warning and IE crashes

Lately I'm getting a Microsoft SmartScreen popup with a dire warning while browsing SD. I am also getting a large number of page crashes using IE v10.

SD used to be very stable. I assume these are due to rogue ads which SD pages load.

The SmartScreen popup I got today looks like this. Please fix this; it is annoying and possibly dangerous.

I have also had the same problem, It has been happening at least 2 weeks now. Today I got the warning on the very front page without clicking on a link at all.
Smart screen protector came up with warning that [] was not safe. I had my computer checked and did not find anything. It is happening on both of my computers now and only does it on slick deals. So please find out what this is.

I have seen some others on different sites say that site crashes IE11 also and I suggested trying to disable scripting..... (Im on IE6 and I have them disabled so I was wondering if it would work for you also)
