    It's possible your computer has been targeted with malware. If you haven't already done so, run a full scan with your anti-malware of choice. I'd also suggest running AdwCleaner.

    ToolsLib - Downloads - AdwCleaner

    on the ADWCleaner scan. You'll also want to run Ccleaner (free) on your browsers, temp files and registry.

    Yep, what she said.
    Additional scans may be needed, but that will be a good start.

    If still receiving message, after doing all above suggestions next time it appears open Task Manager, under Processes Tab highlight page and click on End Task, then shut down computer.

    "Turn OFF router" to disconnect computer from internet.

    If it is a page capturer, next time you fire up your router you will have got rid of it.
