Here lately while filling out some online job applications and using an online diary I will get these random intermitten pop-up alerts asking me if I really want to navigate away from this page even though I didn't click on anything. Sometimes it seems random and sometimes it's like every 20 seconds. I was in the middle of typing an entry and it kept doing it like every 20 seconds. Then sometimes you can browse for awhile without it happening at all. It's super annoying and would like to know if anyone knows what's causing it?

Sounds like you have some sort of Malware on your machine, I would run an up to date AV scan, as well as an anit-spyware scan against your system.
