1. Does it hurt your gmail experience (wrong lay-out, less functionality)?
2. Try it in another Windows account (e.g. the Guest account). Same message or no such message?
Once the answer to #2 is known, we can suggest a solution.

its has ties to the OS and could cause more issues. You can download Chrome and use chrome for Gmail since they are both Google products.
