We have something called the Mac Protector Virus on our MAC and it's making all kinds of requests to "clean up" our system. It also makes pop ups. Can someone please help me clean this virus off our system?

So you are the first to be hit by this to come to G2G.
Anyways, :)

Remember that although I am trying my best to help you, I am not an official staff, nor am I a Mac expert, and accidents can happen.
So back up ALL your data RIGHT NOW and prepare for a reinstall in case I fail to help you.

First, I want to ask you a few questions:
What is your Mac OS version?
I have heard of this rogue, and I believe it come in the form of a software package.
Did you install it? Did you provide the password to install the package?
Could you remember the URL that infected you?
Are you still keeping the installation package?

Meanwhile, I will search for a solution. Please get back to me soon.
