Hi LLeach :)
Go to Add/Remove programs and uninstall IE9 then follow the guidance below;
If you suspect your system may have a malware issue I suggest you check out the self help guide at the malware forum http://www.geekstogo...cleaning-guide/ if after following the guide you believe your system may still be infected you need to start a new topic there and not post any malware logs on this forum as they are not used here, provide them with a link to this thread to show them what if any steps have been taken.
Once you get the all clear from the malware guys if the issue is not resolved return here and someone will assist you.
Yours is not an isolated incident, it has also happened to people with AVG http://forum.avantbr...hp?f=21&t=29445
Where did you get the IE9 software from?
