Thanks for the help.  I figured out a way to use Google Chrome which allowed me to get on the internet.  This mallware only stopped Internet Explorer.  From there I downloaded SpyHunter which took care of it.  I guess there's a reason that McAffee didn't stop it but I'm still pretty confused with all the computer stuff.  Thanks for pointing me in the right direction

This is fake anti-malware and as such fools most antivirus applications into thinking it's OK until it's too late and you've clicked on something which then activates it.

There is an excellent removal guide here:  http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-removal/remove-antivirus-vista-2010

Move this to Malware Discussion > Home User Assistance by the way.
