McAfee Taken over by Smart Fortress

A program called Smart Fortess 2012 has taken over my machine.  Not only was it not detected by McAfee AV +, but the virus has also taken over the McAfee icon.  When I clcik on the McAfee icon, Smart Fortress pops up instead,


Started in Safemode with the same results.


Can't find any info on the McAfee site by searching Smart Fortress, although there is plent out on the web. 


Tried calling Customer Service.  After 20 min, they confirmed that I'm infected (thanks McAfee for that one).


Anyone know how to remove/recover?
