My computer has the Bloodhound 6 virus.
My Norton can not delete or quarantine the file.
Can anybody tell me how to get rid of it or know of a web page that will help me get rid of this thing?
Any help would be appreciated.

bloodhound 6 is not a virus itself, it is how Norton Antivirus identifies files that exhibit virus like activity. This detection process is part of the heuristics NAV uses to detect viruses that are not listed in the antivirus definitions. I would make sure that you have up to date definitions, then run a scan. BTW, you should also have it set to clean files first, then delete them as quarantining files is a complete waste of time. Oh, and the heuristics should be set to default, as you may get false positives if it's set to high.

I also found this.


Bloo­dhound.AOLPWS, Bloodhound.MBR, Bloodhound.boot.string, Bloodhound Word macro virus, Bloodhound.NeuralMBR, Bloodhound.MacMacro, Bloodhound.packed

Bloodhound is not the name of a virus, but a message displayed by Symantec's Norton Anti-Virus when it thinks it may have found a new virus.

You may like to re-scan your system with Sophos Anti-Virus - if it is a virus that Sophos knows about it will tell you its correct name. If Sophos does not find a virus please send a sample to support@sophos.com so our experts can analyse the file. Our virus analysts will be able to ascertain quickly whether it is truly a new virus or a Norton Anti-Virus false alarm.
