Sounds like some form of virus / malware to me - I'd download spybot and run a full scan to see what it finds.

That does sound and look like a virus/malware popup IMHO - on top of using Spybot you can also run a scan with MalwareBytes just in case Spybot misses anything then MalwareBytes should find it,
Have had Spybot miss something on a system of mine before then MalwareBytes picks it up.
