    Hi and welcome to the forum

    What browser are you using?

    Do you have any adblockers installed?

    Generally speaking, these types of displayed messages are mostly informational, asking you to accept cookies etc. Depends also somewhat on your location. For example, if you are accessing sites in the EU you may be asked to accept GDPR related privacy policies.

    How you define cookie policies depends on the browser and other settings.

    Without knowing more about what browser you use, what security or privacy measures you have/want it is hard to say.

    Most of those banners are informational only and it is usually safe to just click on "Continue to site" as long as you understand that cookies will be stored on the computer either until you manually delete them, use browser settings to control history and cookies, or use a 3rd party program to "clean".

    I would strongly advise against using Internet Explorer. If you want to use the default Edge browser I think that is fine.

    Windows Defender is also perfectly adequate for home users.

    And of course common sense when browsing/not opening unknown email attachments etc.
