The Bloodhound.Exploit.6 virus is a Microsoft Internet Explorer/Outlook Express vulnerability discovered in February 2004. The vulnerability results from the incorrect handling of HTML files embedded in CHM files. (CHM is the Microsoft-compiled HTML help format.) However, because of Norton Antivirus' (and other antivirus programs) ability to detect virus patterns, this heuristic detection of viruses can sometimes lead to false positives.  

In most cases the antivirus program detects the virus in Temporary Internet files that have been downloaded from a web page. Such as:

C:\Documents and Settings\UserName\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\KXURSTI7\10523[1].htm 

In these cases, the Bloodhound.Exploit.6 ends up being a false positive detection of a virus. It looks like a virus to the scanner, but in reality it isnt. Now although the exploit is a real threat and can cause damage to a system, these false positive diagnoses from the antivirus software usually are the cause. I have had web pages and even corrupted Hijackthis logs cause this false positive from the antivirus program.

If Norton Antivirus' AutoProtect Settings are set to High for Bloodhound, the program will produce false positives for many files. The default level is recommended for most protection.

If it is a bad virus that won't let you do anything on the computer, follow the instructions on this link. If you can install programs on your computer, follow only steps 7 and 8 from the above link.

To remove the old antivirus, go into Control Panel, Add Remove Programs (or Programs and Features for newer Windows) and double click on the antivirus to start the uninstall process.

It could be a failing tac switch or the micro. The only way to tell is signal trace the switch circuit with a 20mhz scope.. Need a shop for that if you don't have the equipment and it's not terribly expensive...
Footnote: either failure can and usually will get worse over time and may infect other function, vol,ch, power and so on... Find a reputable shop and take it in.. If you have any problem location one let me know..
