If I do a Google search for this they appear to be some sort of popup trojan malware. Neowin does not have any popups, only inline ads (in the page) plus one report of this seems to suggest it may have landed on  your computer/browser through other means, maybe a third party browser extension or site injection?


Either way I can't really do much without knowing exactly what ad is doing it. If the alert pops up again use F12 dev tools to inspect the display ad on the page that is throwing up the error.


Just so you know, in the past I had a downloader extension in Chrome that swapped out all ads on every website for their own and it eventually got booted from the Play store. It was fine up until the developer had enough users and threw a switch that enabled it, that is also trojan and malicious and could be spoofed to appear as if it is coming from Neowin when really the extension is modifying the website to change the ads for their own.
