Address Mask popup window

Yesterday I decided to install Mirror's Edge game once more. But whilst playing it the game was interrupted several times by a Kaspersky Popup window about something called an Address Mask with a URL I have no knowledge of and underneath that it said 'for instance click here'

Can someone tell me what this and does it mean the game shouldn't be played? I have Windows 7.

Address masking refers to the practice of redirecting from one URL to another hidden address - very often done by malware. Possibly your game is redirecting you which is being detected by Kaspersky - it's probably quite innocent in that case, but I don't know the game. :@)
