    This only appear in Edge and not in Google Chrome, IE 11 or Firefox. Typical appearance is from go to www.nba.com or one other popular website.

    There is no harm done, seem just a warning message. Anyway, I put
    Pixel.adsafeprotected.com in my hosts file.

    Any comment?

    Both my IE11 and Edge open www.nba.com fine.

    Does that warning message include a Run button ?
    If yes, ignore the warning and click it................ for now until a fix is found.
    I had had this warning before and an advice was given to me. Unfortunately I cannot trace that thread. I have too many posts to track it.
    Sorry.

    P.S.
    Do you have all Windows updates installed ?

    Normally, most Java Script run somewhere under AppData sub directories like:

    \User\UserName\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\INetCache

    but skeleton.js store the file at Downloads folder under the UserName. That draws my attention.

    I have not have any warning message since adding pixel.adsafeprotected.com to the hosts file for more than 20 hours.

    I am taking note and keeping track to this Skeleton.js in my troubleshooting log.

    You did a manual download of a cumulative update which has yet to be offered in Windows Update.
    Your version is 10586.112.

    I chose not to do the manual update and my version is 10586.104.

    It most likely has Nothing to do with you issue.
    Just to mention our different versions.
