Clicking on the internet icon produces a message telling me that "IE Critical Udpated Needed" I am told that my machine has been taken over after I visited a hacked site. The prompts tell me to download TotalSecure2009.exe to fix the problem. The prompts contain words that are not spelled correctly and bad grammar. I am told that I can return to a site «http://total-ecure2009.com&raquo to upload the software to "fix" my problem. I cannot access anything on the computer as these windows continue to popup. A window pops up that provides the IP address 74.47.227.120 Mozilla/4.0. Can anyone help me fix this, reverse this or get rid of whatever this is?

I can provide more details about my machine and system if you tell me what you need.

Thanks so much for anyones help.

Please download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware to your desktop
from http://thespykiller.co.uk/downloads/mbam-setup.exe or http://www.malwarebytes.org/affiliates/thespykiller/mbam-setup.exe

Double-click mbam-setup.exe and follow the prompts to install the program. At the end, be sure a checkmark is placed next to the following:

Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware. Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware. Then click Finish.

If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version. Press Update to make sure the latest database is loaded.
Once the program has loaded, select Perform quick scan, then click Scan.
When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
Be sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
When completed, a log will open in Notepad.
Please include this log in your next reply.
