Strange security warning (certificate warning) messages popping up at random

Using Spaz Desktop 0.9.24 on Windows 7 64-bit with a Twitter account, and for some reason these security warnings (which I know are technically from Windows/IE itself) started popping up, seemingly at random, whenever the Spaz window has the focus. (If I minimize the application, the prompts do not appear.)

I've been clicking "No" to them ever since they started (and will keep clicking "no" until I figure out what they are from). Sometimes several of them will pop up all at once; other times it is just one or two. I have not noticed any pattern to them.

I've attached a screenshot of the message and of the details of the certificate from the message; the certificate it seems to keep complaining about is for *
