Hmm...it's probably just spam. Do you have your pop-up blocker on? You might want to double check it to make sure you haven't allowed pop-ups for this site.

This is something different from what the other members are describing. That Walmart thing looks like Malware. Malware is something that your computer can pick up on the internet, and then at random points while you are surfing, it'll "pop up" an advertisement. In this case, you really do need to run a virus scan. It looks like you have something on your system.
