Windows 7: Xmarks popup box locked internet

Windows 7 Professional
Xmarks popup box locked internet

I was looking for a thread category "Weird," but I guess this one will. Setup a new computer, have Firefox and Safari. Had Xmarks on old machine and suddenly, up pops the attached message that I can't exit from and can't access Firefox or Safari. It literally jumps around like a demented graphic. How can I delete this? I've copies all programs from external disk to new Program Files, it's not there. Is this a scam popup? As always, your help will surely get me out of this. ellenc
