try the x-cleaner software at this website

One disk to rule them all,
One disk to bind them,
One disk to hold the files
And in the darkness grind \'em.

sorry, but I don't think this will cause problems

you said it came up in a popup, maybe it is spyware deliberately sending you popups, but are made to show a blank page just to annoy you. try what marshall said and run spybot
