Not shure what kind of a message or pop-up you got but can you take a screen shot of it and post it in here so we can determine what it was ?

download spybot
goto www.downloads.com

download spybot and run it

let it update and backup your registry, this may take a while depending on your machine speed.

than run the scanner... and see what it finds
remove anything it finds

yeah mixx is right, you should post a picture of what your seeing, it sounds to me like spyware or malware on your machine, i wouldnt worry about it, its just companies trying to get your attention to buy their software.

if you see the pop up again
press Print Screen button on your keyboard, go into microsoft paint
and press edit paste

save the file and send post it up here
