Late Nov my computer started a pop up headed Antivirus System Pro alert . stating my computer was being attacked by an internet virus . It listed an attack from 12122118016# port25102. Threat win32 /Nuqel.E Do you want to block? I suspected this repeating warning was malicious so I said no . I tried to run mcafee security to stop or remove it and got a warning that file mcu update.exe is infected .Some different addreses and port numbers came up as well. threat Bakerfox.A. A windows security alert posted on the tool bar I used MacAfee to shut down the firewall internet acess and shotly thereafter the entire computer would repeatedly shut down/restart. My computer savvy friend was able to delete the files causing system failure but now the computer takes 5 to 6 minutes to shut off . Slow to shut down windows and to shut down completely . I have run a good registry cleaner to no avail. What next .Help!! Windows X/P system
