Please first, make sure to do a Update run to insure that the MBAM program has the latest database version.

Do a Scan run and be sure there is no adware P U P present.   ( that may be the case in some ).

Tips in general:

Go into the Options ( settings) of Internet Explorer  ( and any other web browser you have).
Make sure that the POPUP blocker is ON.
Set the option on for rejecting (decline) 3rd-party cookies.

And in addition to all that:
Use a good browser extension ( add on) ad blocker.  If your pc has no ad blocker add-on for your browser(s), I would suggest uBlock Origin.
For Mozilla Firefox, use the Mozilla page at this link

For Google Chrome, see

For Internet Explorer browser:

For Opera browser, see

ALSO this too
To help totally block these types of  "popups" I would recommend to only use Firefox browser that also has the addon for
NoScript Suite Lite.
and just only use that when surfing the web.

We have a free version Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit (MBAE) that protects against exploit attacks in your browsers and Java, and a paid version that also protects additional applications such as MS Office.

I would recommend you install the Anti-Exploit
