Appreciate your anxiety concerning the situation, please understand that without certain information I can only provide general recommendations. Your best option is to contact support.

It would be beneficial to know your operating system(Xp, Vista, Win 7)current antimalware/antivirus program(Avast, Micorsoft Security Essentials, Norton, McAfee or other)and the exact name of the malware present based on what is displayed in the popups and what was detected.

From your description I suspect it may be  the fake Security Center. Refer to the link below for comparison and if you feel confident in your abilities to follow a self-help removal guide proceed carefully(note: scroll down the page beyond the ads to the removal guide)

Glad to hear things are good. Final suggestion is that to ensure your clean run Malwarebytes' in Safe mode with Networking until there are no further detections.
