Pop Up Ad with Video Locking Computer

There is some sort of add that is now popping up that looks like it might have a video applet. It is locking up my computer completing requiring a hard shut down. Please end this. Never had this problem till today.

I see I'm not alone. Same happened to me..twice now. Also froze up, used task mgr.to get out/start over. Wierd..back <(previous pg) got fixed, now this happens.

At same time got pop up notice on my pc to upgrade something I didnt understand, so didnt do it. I'll look closer if it shows again, but think it mentioned video & could cause pc to not work right. If happens again, we need to notify admin.
