    Is it installed on your mac? Have a search for it. If it is, get rid of it.

    Get a pop up blocker. Firefox's works for me.

    What makes you think it's a demo that has expired? Have you got a screenshot or anything?

    That's an application, have a look in your apps, utilities folders, as well as in your startup items and activity monitor to find the pesky "utility".

    And don't download scareware in future.
