      This is a spam ad that’s been going around for awhile. Here’s what has worked to remove it:

      Go to Control Panel -> Display -> Desktop. Click on the Customize Desktop button. Then select Web and uncheck (or delete) the webpage Security. Click OK and it’s done.

      Also, before you go back on the internet, check your Internet Options and make sure your home page is what you want it to be. If not, change it back.

      Cheers.

      If you have installed SP2 for Windows XP, make sure you have the Popup blocker activated in Internet Explorer (Also do what the other Answers have advised you to do). Generally I’d you use another browser like Mozilla Firefox, these are usually more secure when it comes to activeX controls etc. Firefox also has a builtin popup blocker and it allows you to configure it to suite your needs, having different “skins” etc.
