Pop Up Ad Everytime I get notification of a PM in my In Box

What gives here? Recently I've noticed that everytime I get a PM and my notification box pops up, I also get a pop up ad for some kind of Windows fixer. Is everyone experiencing this? Is this ad sanctioned by the site??

No problem here.

Have you de-activated your 'pop-up' blocker ?

Yes I did. I've now got my google tool bar to allow no popups. But why on earth do these pop ups occur only when you get a PM notification? Does that mean there's some kind of virus in the messageboard?
