    Most likely you have a  virus or some adware/spyware. I would recommend that you perform a full virus scan using your antivirus software. If you dont have antivirus software you can get AVG for free from . You may also want to do a scan with AdAware ( ) and spybot ( ).
    This should hopefully help you get rid of what is causing this. Good luck.

    It is a general pop-up due to Internet Explorer security settings. When does the pop-up show ? For example opening certain websites or at random ? If at random, andrew_aj1 is right. If not at random but from certain websites or applications adjust the IE security settings:
    Tools -> Internet Options -> Advance -> Scroll to the bottom -> you see options for three warnings there....

    Tools -> popup blocker -> popup blocker settings -> 2 checkmarks there
