Bytefence ad popup

I am running Windows 10 on my computer, and all of a sudden I got an ad popup (that I can't get rid of) claiming that Bytefence has discovered malware on my computer and offering a "deal" if I buy it.  I've never heard of it nor bought nor asked for it.  What is it, should I keep it, and/or how do I get rid of it?

Thanks,

Phil
