Facebook forcing software download before logging in

Today while logged into Facebook I was suddenly logged out. When I tried to log back in a dialogue box appeared saying they detected malware on my FB page and so I needed to download ESET malware scanner and run it before I could log back in. I have several active antivirus and malware scanners and all are clean. This is a bogus Facebook requirement and I want it turned off so I can log in. Anyway to do this?

@trobinson017,
It sounds like you've been hacked. Don't download anything. Try using your phone to get onto facebook. Does it produce the same warning?
