Go to the services and turn off the messenger. It's a backdoor popup and not a system alert. The download address tells you it's not for real.

That's not an official Alert, although I have seen it on another PC. You may need to update NOD32, or, maybe it's not a virus, but spyware, which in that case NOD32 wouldn't pick it up.

Just kill the messenger service.

thats a back door popup that advertisers like to use, annoying as hell.
