"The is a recommended download install takes less thatn a minute

Free full version for Windows 7, Vista, XP, 2000.

it has an INSTALL button but I have had everyone avoid it. I have tried running CCleaner but it does not seem to clear it up. Has anyone come across this before or know how to clear it? I am running Windows 7 with IE9 and because of other apps we cannot upgrade to IE10

Please scan your workstations with Malwarebytes Antimalware (free).

Then, scan with AdwCleaner: < http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/adwcleaner/ >

I would recommend downloading and running something like RogueKiller:

You should also check and verify that you don't have additional addins running in IE. Can you let us know what addins you have installed?

Right click on the Install button|click Properties and see if there is an Address (URL) line.   Or click on the Install button and "Copy Shortcut".   Post the info here.  This may help identify the source and allow specific uninstall suggestions.
