    There's a little bubble on the right side of my screen, near the clock, that keeps popping up (and won't go away, which is very annoying), saying "Your computer is infected!" Unknowingly, I clicked it and it presented me with "Awola Anti-Spyware 6.0" or something to that effect. I Googled Awola and found out that it was a rogue anti-spyware program, or something. So, I checked out Add/Remove Programs, and it wasn't in there. So I went through the Start menu to Uninstall Awola, and it said it was removed successfully, but the bubble will still not go away.

    I am completely computer-stupid and have no idea what to do. Any help?
