I need help

By apeshua ·
My computer I think has been infected with a virus. Norton detects it as Bloodhound, but I can not get rid of it with norton, and don't have any other virus protection. What exactly is this virus and how do I get rid of it? ANY help is extremely appreciated!

Hi there,

You have system restore turned on ?

If so, turn it of and run another virus scan.

If that works, then you can turn system restore back on.

Let us know how you get on

cheers

Norton AntiVirus (NAV) has the ability to detect unknown viruses of various types using heuristic algorithms known as Bloodhound. This technology was developed by Symantec Security Response.

Make sure you update to the latest virus definitions and Norton should remove it.

Your PC is probably infected with adware & spyware if:

You have downloaded music online
Your PC is running extremely slow
You are pestered by those horrible popup ads
Your homepage keeps changing

Don't let people invade your privacy and slow down your PC! Try NoAdware for FREE and see for yourself if your PC is infected!

try downloading AGV antivirus. I'm currently using it and it's really a good tool.

Turn off system restore if it is used in your os.

Run Your Antivirus again
