One of my user's is getting this weird pop-up that says "Could not resolve test domain, please contact your administrator." I have attached a screenshot. Has anyone seen this before? I have a feeling that it is some type of virus or something, but have been running a lot of scans anbd am not finding anything.

Doubt it's a virus given the icon looks like a VBScript program.  Probably a VBS file in your startup folder.
Can you give us a Hijackthis log?

it keeps timing out at 70% every time. Whether I try and download the file or run it. also, i did not see any unusual scripts in the start-up folder.

You have two VB scripts running:
\\nps.doi.net\netlogon\confickerreps\confickersnitcher.vbs
\\inpnewhmemsrv02\smsgpoclientinstall\clientinstall.vbs
Likely, one of these is causing the error.  Open them up with Notepad and search for the phrase: "test domain"
These are assigned using Group Policy, so if one of them is causing the error you need to talk with your admin staff.
Not related to your direct question, but looking at your log, I see you have both Symantec Antivirus loaded and Windows Defender.  Why?  Symantec does greyware detection.

99.9% sure it is the ConfickerSnitcher VB Script:
ftp://disftp.state.ar.us/pub/NT/AntiVirus/ConfickerSnitcher/setup.conf
if dnsfailed = 1 then
MsgBox "Could not resolve test domain, please contact your administrator", 0 + 16, "WARNING"
End If
