More for the virus/malware section, but here goes....

Delete your Cookies and clear your internet cache.
Download and update MalwareBytes Antimalware. You can get it from Filehippo.
Reboot into SAFE MODE (F8 before the windows splash screen, unless its windows 8 ) and run Malwarebytes, just follow instructions.
Once done reboot and run your virus scanner, then update windows fully using Windows Update.
It is also worth downloading and running CCleaner and using its reg fix tool...

Those pop-up warnings are traps! Clicking on the [OK] box or the [X] box may only welcome in those malware hits. Best way is to use the task bar app, right-click and choose 'close'. If the warning box still exists, then reboot the system. If it is still there, then a cleansing is in order, ASAP!!
Set your browser preferences for "no third-party cookies".

Or go to the processes tab and find IEXPLORE (if using IE), firefox.exe (if using Firefox) or chrome.exe (For Chrome) and End Task the application.
This method can work better sometimes for really problematic scripts.

You can download and install a free utility called spybot search & destroy from www.safer-networking.org and check for any infection
