Popup says Warning! Your PC is at risk of virus and malware attack

I occasionally get a popup with a window title "The page at http://piscanner2.info says:"
and the body of the message says "Warning! Your PC is at risk of virus and malware attack.

Your system requires immediate check!
System Security will perform a quick and free scan of your PC for viruses and malicious programs."

Does anyone know if this is malware and how I remove it? When this occurs, which is occasionally, I poweroff my system and reboot, because I do not want to click the OK button or the X exit in case it is boobytrapped. Am I being paranoid?

Thanks for help.
