Hello,
as per my friend Tom request, please, post a screenhot of that 'alert'. 
If you are not be able to post a screenshot, copy and paste the 'alert' text. 

Anyway, I think it is a scam attempt. 
So, do nothing. Simply advice us on the content.

Hi jtt37149, 

It is more likely that the message that appeared on the screen is a scam, which is going around as of late. No worries, no harm will be made on your computer as long as we get rid of the message right away. Then, make sure to create a backup of your browser bookmarks and reset your browser to its default settings. 

To combat these threats, make sure your Trend Micro program is updated to its latest version and be sure that you are aware of the signs of a scam. Here... you may check out these links to know more about this:

I hope you can get back to us and update us of what happened.
