Have my emails been hacked into?

I have 2 email accounts, 1 for personal use and 1 for work use, both are Hotmail.com addresses. For the past month or so each time I open my personal one a page comes up after I log in asking for information. It has a blue bar across the top saying 'Microsoft account' but no other indication it is from them. It then has the title; A password isn't enough. This is followed by asking for an alternative email address, a phone number and a security question which consists of asking for my fathers middle name. Is this a phishing scam? There are no boxes to tick to delete it and it only comes up on the one account. Any ideas how I can get rid of it? I have run AVG, CCleaner and cleared out my cookies. Thanks in advance.
