Whatever you do, don't click on either of those buttons!
As a first step, if you have not already done so, use Ad-AwareSE, Spybot, and AVG Anti-spyware applications to scan your hard drive and allow them to remove any malware they find. (All of these applications are free, and be sure to update them before running them). Links to these can be found here:

Let us know the results.
Cheers,

This same thing has been showing up on my computer. Please email me if you find a solution to this, and I will do the same for you.

Thanks!

I used all 3 programs, Spybot got rid of a number of hotbars that were most likely installed by this little bubble, but it is still there.

Hello I had something similar like that. There was this (!) icon in my taskbar and it would tell me my computer is infected... Luckily I removed it with SmitRem.
