This is most likely caused by a form of malware called a browser hijacker. Do you have any malware protection installed? I would download Malwarebytes free and Spybot and run them both from safe mode.

Whatever you choose to do DO NOT click the link. It is a financial institution, to my knowledge. Fairly harmless, except that from then you will be harassed big time, with offers to invest your money.
It does seem, as Neemobeer suggests, that you have been hijacked in some way. But, take a look in your start up options and see if something is running there.

It's also worth checking your browsers on your home network with another different computer, and seeing if you get the same error message screen. If you don't, that 1st PC is definitely infected with some virus/malware; apply the suggestions from Neemo to detect/clean and you'll be all set to go.:up:.

If a 2nd PC in your home, either that you already own, or borrow from a friend, neighbor, or family-member, also has the same exact error message screen it could be that you have a very rare Router-Virus. These are extremely difficult to remove. And cleaning/removing the virus/malware will prove futile, since as soon as you connect ANY computer to the router in your home, it will be immediately reinfected again! If you get to this point, take a look at my ROUTER VIRUS REMOVAL PROCEDURE post here: Drivers Constantly Being Corrupted

Best of luck to you,:encouragement:

As many have indicated this is adware/malware and its best to run Malwarebytes.
