It sounds like it's just a matter of updating your antivirus...
installing an antivirus is the first part.. the second part is updating the antivirus (and keep it that way) to be fully protected and avoid security warnings

right click on the antivirus icon on the system tray and look for an "update"option.. or just open it by double clicking on the icon and look for "liveupdate" or something similar.

You should be able to call Norton and they should be able to assit you. If they do not I would suggest using the free microsoft antivirus and spyware solution. Do a google search for Microsoft Security essentials and that should find you the link. If you need to do an online scan you can go to http://safety.live.com which will re-route you to a onecare site that has an online scanner. You will need to install the activex components which will either appear above the webpage below the Internet Explorer address bar or will pop up a box to install. Microsoft will remove this at a future date so don't be suprised if the online scan dissapears. If you do the full scan it will defrag the machine and do a registry repair which can fix a lot of issues.

System has a virus mbr invected by bloodhpund.mbr how do I delete this. I purchased Norton 2010 but it won't remopve the problem says it needs to be installed but can't get into system to install.


You're Acer probably has Rescue and Recovery™ installed. Rescue and Recovery is a suite of self-recovery tools to help you diagnose, get help, and recover your system.

When you set the Bloodhound heuristics in Norton AntiVirus to it's highest setting you probably ran a virus scan and saw a Norton AntiVirus alert that states that it's detected a potential threat, Bloodhound.MBR. But this is probably not a virus but the recovery software on your laptop.

Solution:

If you have IBM Rescue and Recovery and Norton AntiVirus Bloodhound heuristics are configured to the highest setting, Norton AntiVirus may alert you with a Bloodhound.MBR detection when you run a virus scan. To avoid this, configure your Bloodhound heuristics to the default setting.

To reset Bloodhound to the default setting
  1. Start Norton AntiVirus.
    If Norton AntiVirus was installed as part of Norton Internet Security or Norton SystemWorks, then start one of those programs.
  2. Click Options.
    If you see a submenu, then click Norton AntiVirus.
  3. Click Auto-Protect.
  4. Click Bloodhound.
  5. Click Default level of protection (recommended).
  6. Click OK
  7. Repeat steps 3-6 for Manual Scan.
    In step 3, substitute Manual Scan for Auto-Protect.
  8. Exit Norton AntiVirus.

I cant uninstall norton antivirus 2008


Norton Anti-Virus 2008 was made to not be uninstalled. It had integrated itself into your system files preventing Windows Installer from removing the anti-virus machine. Symantec has made this tool available to remove the product. However believe me when I say traces of Norton will remain until the hard-drive is reformatted.

http://service1.symantec.com/Support/tsgeninfo.nsf/docid/2005033108162039

Once you remove Norton, I highly recommend you stop using Symantec products and check out ESET's product line of Anti-Virus and online-security tools.
