I can't load an security update from Macfee because I suposably still have Norton Rescue DIsk still somewhere (though I can't find it). It is not in the add/delete programs,I have ran Norton program removal provided by Norton via their website, I have searched all flles and folders for anything that has Norton, disk, rescue, symentic, nsw, etc and can't find the file. Have had others give a try at it as well with no luck. How can I bypass the file so I can install Macfee or how can find this phantom file/program that supposably still exists on my computer.

You will need to use another computer and download Kaspersky rescue disk. After downloading the disk image burn it to a cd and boot the machine with this disk. Run the rescue disk and it will detect the infected files. When the program if finished select remove all infected files and reboot your computer. You also need to either install a good antivirus program or update the one you have to protect against this type of infection. The Kaspersky rescue disk can be downloaded from their site here: https://support.kaspersky.com/viruses/rescuedisk
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.
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.
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
Start Norton AntiVirus.
If Norton AntiVirus was installed as part of Norton Internet Security or
Norton SystemWorks, then start one of those programs.
If you see a submenu, then click Norton AntiVirus.
Click Default level of protection (recommended).
Repeat steps 3-6 for Manual Scan.
In step 3, substitute Manual Scan for Auto-Protect.
norton should be able to scan 'flash memory', and remove mal-ware. click on my computer, choose your flash drive- right click and choose 'scan'. since norton came with your 'netbook', it should be able to clean your 'flashdrive'- do you have any usb peripheral drives connected? norton should detect, and clean them, as well! make sure you 'update' your norton definitions first- if you can! try un-plugging any peripherals, before you run it. if it cleans up- then upgrade your norton definitions, and reconnect any peripherals, and run norton on them!! norton should allow you to chose which device to check! good luck!
There is a great tool called combofix that I have used to kill off several nasty viruses. This page has info on using the program and links to download it. You don't need to enter safe mode to run combofix.
To fix the problem
Disable the S.M.A.R.T error detection feature in the CPUCool program or similar utility.
Boot to the Windows 2000 or XP installation CD, and at the Startup menu, press R for repair.
In the Recovery Console, type the following:
When the CHKDSK process has finished, reboot the computer.
Run the program again.
The error should no longer be reported unless you start using the S.M.A.R.T error detection feature again.
Error occurs with PartitionMagic 8.0
If you encounter Error 1516 with PartitionMagic 8, first run CHKDSK /F on the affected partition. For instructions on how to run CHKDSK, read How to Run Microsoft's CHKDSK from the Command Line. If this does not fix the error, try running PartitionMagic with the /IFC switch, which causes file system errors to be ignored.
To run PartitionMagic with the /IFC switch
Boot from the first PartitionMagic rescue disk.
When you are prompted to insert the second rescue disk, press Ctrl+C to drop to the command (A:>) prompt.
Insert the second PartitionMagic rescue disk and type the following:
