Because, Windows Internet Antivirus Prois a virus itself, and removing it is quite difficut, as it bypass the Norton.

Make a backup of your files as soon as possible, and have the computer cleaned.

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.

I have Antivirus Pro 2009 and its a fake, can't remove it...


Shut the computer down. Disconnect from the network/internet.
Restart, tap F8 until you get the safe mode menu, chose safe mode no network, uninstall, click start, click run, type regedit, click edit, click find, type antivirus, click next, see if what it found is antivirus pro or norton, if pro delete it hit F3 key to repeat the search and continue deleting the antivirus pro entries until there are NONE left.. if one or more of the entries pointed to a file name go delete that file, restart in normal mode, run Norton, remove any virus found, run Ad-Aware from lavasoft.com remove any critical objects and leave any negligible ones alone, now you should be able to plug back into the net and do ALL windows updates, and update norton and ad-aware.

Norton Internet Security 2009 Causes Blue Screen of Death.


Hi there
Thats Norton for you! this is a very heavy and memory hungry program, it takes control of your computer and if you have not got enough system or virtual memory it will cause the pc all kinds of problems. To fix this either upgrade the system memory or don't use Norton, use AVG free instead, its a lighter program and lets you have some speed back over the internet.

good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!
