Ignore them.
They're advertising pop-ups.
If you follow their directions, the only thing you'll do, is infest your computer with spyware/malware.

Are you using these basic security programs?
(They're all free.)

aČ free - a complementary product to antivirus software which is specialized in protection against harmful software. Antivirus software often features an inadequate protection against Trojans, Dialers and Spyware. aČ fills this gap.
Ad-Aware - A good program similar to SpyBot S & D.
Spybot S&D - Detects and removes spyware, of different types, from your computer.
SpywareBlaster - A good program that prevents spyware from being installed on your computer in the first place. This program is always running in the background, protecting your computer. It prevents the installation of bad active X controls found in web pages.
SpywareGuard - A nice compliment to SpywareBlaster. This allows you the option to prevent downloads that contain bad active X controls.

If not, you need to. These programs, updated and used regularly, will do a lot to keep your computer clean of spyware, trojans, keyloggers, browser hijackers, etc...

Download them, update them, and then run them.

Important:
Please read this tutorial on Spybot S&D before using it. Spybot can do SERIOUS damage, if not used properly.

Also turn off Windows Messenger Service.
That's where these pop-ups are coming from.
(this isn't MSN Messenger)

Click Start / Control Panel / Performance and Maintenance / Administrative Tools
Double-click Services.
Scroll to Messenger service, and double-click it.
Select STOP service
In the Startup drop down box, select Disabled.

Also do this for:
Alerter
SSDP Discovery service
Telnet
Universal Plug & Play (not Plug & Play)

Now OK your way out.

Then in Internet Explorer
Click Tools / Internet Options / Advanced tab
Un-check both entries of Enable install on demand.

These steps will help to lock down your computer a little tighter.
