Pop up message for Registry error

In the past few days a number of pop up messages appear from time to time saying there is a problem with the registry. The pop up then gives a URL of a site that will fix my registry. Seems a bit dodgy to me.

My Norton Antivirus is not picking up anything when I scan the system.

I want to know what can I do to identify where these pop ups are orignating from and what should I do to get rid of them.
