I downloaded anti-virus 2009 and then went on your site and downloaded MBAM to get rid of it. I thought it had worked but when I go on the internet, it usually redirects me to a site that says:
Internet Explorer Warning - visiting this web site may harm your computer

Most likely causes:
The website contains exploits that can launch a malicious code on your computer
Suspicious network activity detected
There might be an active spyware running on your computer

What you can try;
Activate Antivirus 2009 for secure Internet surfing (Recommended)
Check your computer for virus and malware
More information

I am usually able to go back to my intended website but there is a post under the task bar that says "The page you are opening is probably contains spyware, adware, etc.. Your system might be at risk, Click here to protect your system with Antivirus 2009.

I am not that computer savy but can follow directions pretty well.

Thanks so much,

One more time with Mbam so we can see what we're dealing with
Please reboot the computer
Open MBAM and click Update tab, select Check for Updates,when done
click Scanner tab,select FULL scan
After scan click Remove Selected, Post new scan log for review
