I'v had raod runner for a long time- never saw that message. I wouldn't hit the button.
what do YOU think it means?
go with your gut.

Most often, such letters indicate some copyright organization has comlained to your isp about illegal p2p at your ip address. I'd check out that e-mail they mention, or call them to ask about the specifics.

It means you're computer is bugged with viruses and either you have to fix it within the next 24 hours or they shut down your connection.

So download spyware, trojan, keyloggers, and virus scanners NOW!

But also wait until you receive the email from that known ISP.

Cheers and good luck ^_^

Several possibilities, none of them good. First of all, the link appears to be who they say they are. The whois indicates the domain is owned by Time Warner/RoadRunner.
The first possibility (although not likely) is that someone is using your broadband for purposes that violate RR's terms of service. These most likely would be related to spam, illegal porn or possibly running some type of unauthorized server. If you are using an unsecured wireless card, your connection may be in use by others outside your home.
The most likely is that your PC has been infected and is in use as a zombie and is regenerating a ton of spam.
As others have said, do a virus and spyware sweep using online services first (if you have some installed it may be already compromised and might not locate the infection). Try Pandaware Active scan or Trend Mircos online scanner. Try to repair if possible.Then down load tools such as spybot S&D, Ad-awareSE (both free) as well as a good quality virus tool and re run your sweeps again.

It means you either have a virus on your machine and they want you to take it off, if you don't they will stop your connection or they want you to stop using P2P connections.

Scan your machine.

Don't take any action online. Call or email their regular customer service and make sure its real. It sounds like it might be a scam. A genuine email would have used your name / id
