Antivirus Software Alert
Details

Attacked port: 17861
Threat: win32/nugel.e

what shud i do...

download.cnet.com/Spy…tml

Personally (and I'm not very good with computers) but I would delete all temporary internet files first

Sounds to me like you have whats known as scareware. This is a program which randomly throws up fake virus / trojan/ attack alerts along with a "click here" message. When you follow it's advise, it takes you to a web page which promises to fix your problems at a price.

The whole things a scam......the only virus is the one generating the alerts.

Rather than me go into a long winded explanation, I'd recommend downloading Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from /]http//ww…rg/ and do a full scan.

Don't panic too much. Just remember the alerts are fake and you are not being attacked by a multitude of virii or trojans or internet hackers.

For more info have a look at this ]http//en…are

My brother often gets these as he has no concept of safe web surfing and goes around clicking links like a maniac.

Do all the scans people suggest and afterwards make sure you have a firewall, virus checker and possibly spyware checker installed. Then maybe get hold of a free browser called 'Firefox' and install something called 'noScript' into it that blocks all those naughty little (possibly) infected banners and gubbins that are around now unless you allow a site.

whats wrong with the antivirus software you are currently using?
