    Clear your history and Cache in Chrome or switch over to Safari. And NEVER click okay on a popup when you visit a site.

    If you're saying it's showing and you can't get rid of it...some malicious popups can require a Force Quit..been that way for quite a while.

    Just follow the instructions at the bottom of this page to get rid of it. Nothing to worry about.

    LOL, that's funny. Where where you browsing to get that? I hate Chrome.

    It's a scam - likely an ad that includes JavaScript for the pop up. This sort of thing is exactly why some folks use an ad blocker.
