Is this something that we need to worry about, or is this just a harmless popup?

You do not seem to have any anti-virus programs installed.
Get any one of the freely available ones as well as some anti-spyware and make sure your system is not infected and going forward is more protected than it is now.

We have McAfee installed, as you can see by the icon in the task bar indicated by the V shield.

Sorry can't really read it, but "could be" the Fake.Alert or one of the other variants...  Can that computer access WindowsUpdate?  Any other error messages?

note the setting in the security center dealing with Virus Protection not found could mean that the version you have might be outdate.  Check the Virus definition version.

The pop up could be  a fake do not click anywhere (ok nor cancel).  You should use taskmgr to terminate the pop-up.

You should still make sure that your system is not compromised.  You could use the online scanner at housecall.trendmicro.com.

This is the activity of a Trojan program that is trying to trick you into installing a Rogue antispyware / Antivirus application that is useless
avoid clicking Ok , run a scan using Malwarebytes antimalware or Superantispyware , if the problem persists , Please post a hijack this log.

LOL, didn't take any chances, wiped the machine. Just was a little weary about Network Security today.
