Question MacBook Pro weird Popup message.

What's up guys, i have had my MacBook for awhile now, and just recently it started giving me this weird pop up message, i switched over to google chrome from firefox, not because of the pop-up and for some reason it still pop's up (by the way i like chrome more) If any of you Mac guys can help me out that would be great.

Below is a screen shot of the pop up meesage.



Thanks again guys all help is much appreciated.

And i always press cancel (just a heads up)

Go download Sophos Anti-Virus and give your computer a scan, it's the best free anti-virus software you can download for a Mac. It could just be some adware that's causing it to happen. It's obviously coming from the browser since official Mac messages aren't regularly black. That is unless you have a program that changes your **** around. But since it's linked to a website in the pop-up, my conclusion is adware.

alright, so just down Sophos and just give my computer a full system scan?

Thanks a lot

That is just a popup from the website. I would simply ignore it. I have gotten it before.

Ya I've seen it, too, on a fresh install of Lion. It's a popup related to one of the PBN ad's. It's one of those.
