I have recently noticed my computer has been running slowly ever since this toolbar/program called Blekko was in-voluntarily installed and downloaded on my computer. It also redirects my google searches when I click on the links, they often lead to ads and innaproprioate content. According to www.2-viruses.com/remove-blekko-redirect-virus if I cannot manually un-install the program I might have a bad problem with my computer. I have Norton 360 installed and is always up-to-date and am very careful with my internet usage. I live in Australia if that helps. I have seen numerous websites that have various ways to rid the computer of the virus, but I am not confident to install and run all of those anti-malware and anti-spyware programs that are 'supposed' to help. Any help would be awesome!

You might like to try spybot search and destroy. The image below has a few toolbars in it, I realise the issue you have is not there. Firstly do a registry back up, (mz backup is free) also running some software in safe mode (see help and support from the start menu) can have a better result. When downloading and installing the real time protection should be rejected as it can conflict with Norton, so the basic version is required. There are a couple of other links one is MBAM, which some people report conflict with Norton in the basic and PRO versions.
Seventh one down.

Through your own admission of being not too tech savy (unconfident), I suggest you do not run any other programs, but do go to one of the malware removal sites listed by mp3jo.
Just my 2 cents.
