There is a virus on my computer in which every 30 seconds a pop-up comes onto my screen in the bottom right hand corner above the clock. It reads "Spyware Protect 2009 Alert" in red on the top of the pop-up. Under that it says "Your computer is being attacked by an internet virus. It could be a password-stealing attack, a trojan - dropper or similar." Under that message it reads "Details Atack from:126.96.36.199, port 44898, Attacked port: 51291, Threat: Win32/Nuqel.E" It then asks if I want to block the attack. If I click less on it, it brings me to a new window in which antispyware software is being sold. I have tried to find what the source of this pop up is but I have had no luck... Please tell me how I can get rid of it... Also, I think I have a virus that does not let me use google or yahoo's search engine. Everytime I search on those sites, all of the results take me to a site called freesearch.com or something... Help!
