This is an old and amusing story (if computers amuse you.)
The short story is: Ignore it. You can prevent the messages from
appearing altogether in Internet Options > Advanced tab.
The longer story is: At one time, Microsoft wrote its own version of
Java, which it later folded by court order (or a consent decree, I
forget which.) The intent of the messages was to warn developers who
were writing for the Microsoft version of Java that their code contains
errors. For some reason (possibly valid, possibly not) it's still
possible to show the error messages.
