Clicking on a popup can indeed be dangerous....but there is never a certainty an infection occurred, depending on the popup, and, which browser, and, your use of antimalware/antivirus.....

There are fake Adobe flash update popups out there downloading backdoors into systems, causing people losses of thousands of dollars....; do not accept any adobe flash updates unless you are at adobe's website....

If you see a new task manager process running afterward, or high cpu useage, or..an empty bank account...that would be bad....
