This web page just appeared in my browser click here

It's obviously a scam, but how did it 'pop-up'?

I guess you are not asking "How do popups work?"

Are you saying this popped up when you were not browsing?

Right. I was browsing on google, but had not clicked on a link that would have directed me to that site. It just appeared as another window (3) on the IE toolbar.

Try BHODemon click here

Yep,

It would certainly be worth scanning for spyware but if you had been browsing then any page you visited could have initiated that popup, you don't have to have chosen explicitly to visit that site.

Downloaded and ran BHODemon, thanks. Only Spybot and Adobe found, as benign.

GrahamP, thanks. I will monitor for any repetition. Spyware regularly scanned for.
