I am having trouble to get rid of this Police-help.com pop-up block page on my browser. It all happened out of nowhere when I searched information online the other day.

Do I need to enter the fine in order to unlock browser from Police-help.com message? What can I do to make this fine page on my browser go away? Please advise.
