Im really sorry that I cant help you..

 

Try AVG and run a complete scan.? Run a scan with Ad-Aware? Im sure you did stuff like that. But I cant help you more. I never had big virus problems.

First check the symantec site for a specific fix for the bloodhound virus. They should have step by step instructions somewhere. If you can't find it, download and install AVG Free virus center and Ad-aware. Boot your computer into safe-mode and let both run a full (deep) scan. Hopefully that will take care of it.

 

EDIT: Since the computer is so new, I can't imagine you have a ton of essential data on it. Just reformat if you can't find a decent fix. If you don't know how to do this, find a friend that does.

try looking for the file manually and then deleting it. Make sure the attributes are not set to read only. I f you cant find the file, go into view and allow hidden files and folders.

Make sure you run your anti-virus programs with the option to restore turned off - the virus often hides in the restore partition and will not be fixed. I had a horrid virus that I could not get rid of for awhile . . . finally XoftSpy got it for me (and I run McAfee, AVG, Ad-Aware and NoAdware religiously).

 

You probably know more than I do about comps, but use HiJack This and get someone who can visually identify the problem for you.

Honestly, I could spend the entire day typing a response on what you could try or do. But it would be much easier on vent. Lemme know when you have time and I can sit down and try to help you thru it.

 

I've actually been hit with Bloodhound a few times, but Symantec AV stopped\Quarentined it. Its typically not a serious threat.
