If you're meaning a little pop-up from the bottom of the screen like a Toaster notification, then the chances are you've got an infection from HostageWare. The sort of notice that keeps reminding you that you 'really need' to install XYZ to remove whatever it tells you you've got.

This mainly occurs with, shall we say, the Less Salubrious material on the net.
