What does a bloodhound virus do to a computer?

What does a bloodhound computer virus do? It causes your computer to automatically download virus-loaded sites onto your system (favorites) and opens infected and unwanted web pages without your consent as soon as you go online. Here is more input: * Best remedy: Norton Antivirus * They have many forms so therefore you cannot fully identify one. In my case it was bloodhound.w32 -- it freezes up the computer. * It wrecks your PC. * Read both of the F-Secure and Symantec links to the right BEFORE doing any cleaning of the virus. Only Norton labels unknown viruses "bloodhound" and therefore ever finds one. You may want to scan with this which could find the virus with another name, then re-scan with Norton to see if that same bloodhound thing is still there. This is the free Microsoft anti-virus line.

i don't speaking English!Can i write dutch?

ik denk dat je de bestanden moet verwijderen ik heb hetzelfde probleem. maar hoe zie of het bestand nodig is voor de computer.

You can use the Error-checking tool to check for file system errors and bad sectors on your hard disk.

Open My Computer, and then select the local disk you want to check. On the File menu, click Properties. On the Tools tab, under Error-checking, click Check Now. Under Check disk options, select the Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors check box.

what happens when u cant go online to send or retrieve any info on the virus,i cant access the net at all,as soon as i boot up norton tells me i have a virus w32 that cannot be repaired,couldn't do anything at all.i borrowed another copy of norton antivirus 2005 and tried uninstalling and reinstalling it.but just before it uninstalled it,sait it had failed,same with installing new one.anyway now my PC boots up,norton doesnt appear anymore and it doesnt say i have a virus,but there initializing errors pop up before i can do anything,still cant access the net or do anything basically.anybody have any more info or is my PC kapput???

I just had the same thing with my computer this weekend. I couldn't get on the net or install any anti-virus program because of the "bloodhound.W32.1. I had to format my hard drive and reinstall everything. Word of caution: be sure to enable your Internet firewall protection, etc., before you go on the Internet. That fixed it when all else failed. I constantly backup my files just incase of problems like this. Good luck.

How can you remove C WINDOWS winlogon exe and C WINDOWS fntldr exe Trojans when Norton will not repair them?

Download and run firefox to protect your computer from future spyware attacks and pop ups which are coming in through internet explorer (Trojan downloaders, win32 ).Browser attacks aren't easy to spot because they piggyback on legitimate traffic that doesn't exhibit many obvious warning signs

1. Run Deckard's System Scanner (DSS)

2. Run the vundo and combo fix

3. Run Malwarebytes Anti-Malware

4. Run the anti spyware removal programs spybot

5 Run Superantispyware

6. Run a complete scan with free curing utility Dr.Web CureIt!

winlogon.exe is required on machines that have a network connection of any kind. Removing it wouldn't be wise. -

i am having a similar proble, winlogon.exe is actually a virus. it has been used on my computer to hack into my email and send spam email to other users. i am currently looking for a way to remove it as well. the only way i have come across is to reinstal windows.

If you really want to remove it, boot from a knoppix (http://www.knoppix.net) cd. The captive-driver allows you to write to ntfs-partitions.

C:\Windows\winlogon.exe is virus malware etc relatively small file carries out virus activities. Needs to be started on reboot. Remove by first killing startup entry - use Spybot Search and destroy (Tools - Startup) or hijackthis, or edit registry directly whichever you feel comfortable with. After startup has been disabled can delete file using explorer - no longer dangerous. NB - likely to be other files loaded using same technique check any startup entry that accesses file in C:\Windows rather than C:\Windows\System32 likely to be virus malware etc.

C:\Windows\System32\winlogon.exe is windows logon function appears in taskmanager - killing task will halt system - does not need any startup entry. Do not remove this file!!

C:\Windows\System32\winlogon.exe can be fixed by starting up in safe mode then opening the i386 directory and copying the winlogon.exe. After you do that you go into your System32 directory paste the file, and do not confirm that you want to overwrite the file yet. Kill the winlogon.exe process now(this can't be done through windows task manger but security task manger can kill it) and confirm the file overwrite. You should have about a second before you system brings up an error screen.

now reboot and upload your winlogon.exe to http://virusscan.jotti.org/en to confirm that your winlogon.exe is no long infected.

How do you eliminate a 'Bloodhound Packed' virus from WINDOWS System32 ia dll when Norton is unable to do it?

Try CWShredder. It worked for me. No more annoying Searchpage browser hijack trash (fingers crossed).

Also try downloading Spybot, it's good and it's free!

re-start your computer in safe mode. Go to my computer, local disk (c:), select windows,select system 32, find ia.dll. Right-click on this file and delete it in its entirety.SUCCESS !My question: is this file unimportant enough to just delete it ?

Simple. Run AVG from GriSoft. It's free.

All Trojan horses are hidden files so you would need to go to the Files Option (click the View tab)at Control Panel and uncheck both the *Hide file extension for known file types & *Hide protected operating system files (Recommended)-boxes, then OK yourself out. You will then need to restart your computer and and go into Safe Mode by holding the F8 key down -(kind of at the beginning of bootup). When you're at the DeskTop screen go to Start/ Search/ For Files and Folders and type up the NAME OF THE FILE & EXT (i.e.- ia.dll), you can delete this file from here.

I have had 4 Trojan horses on my C drive and kinda figured out the above method a week ago. I deleted the Temp file from the Restore folder after unchecking the hidden files boxes, then went to SafeMode to delete what virus files that were still there. My computer is now absolutely FREE of these pests!

read this link :http://securityresponse.symantec.com/avcenter/venc/data/bloodhound.packed.HTML?Open

It will tell you what it is en how to deal with it.

This is not an actual virus, but Norton has detected a series of them. On my machine it stopped me from contacting Symantec or running Live Update. Here's how I got rid of it: 1) turn off XP System Restore 2)Get to Symantec through a "back door" sarc.com,click on download, update virus definitions using "Intelligent Updater" 3)restart computer in safe mode, 4) run a full system scan and delete al files detected (I had 26--none named "bloodhound," mostly spyware--5) clear the temporary Internet Files, 6)restart computer in regular mode 6) enable the System Restore.

I've been fiddling with this for a month and was about to fork over $40-70 to Symantec to walk me through the process. Getting the live update through the Intelligent Updater was the key. You can't do anything without the update.

well i got rid of it by finding where the virus was withspy doctor free addition and then deleted the files quite simple really

I also face this problem when i copy 1 file to my home PC, but this virus seem to be not detect by my office laptop which have AVG antivirus installed. It only detect by Norton. So, i also not very sure is this a virus? I have been using AVG for many years and it seem to be very reliable.

How do you remove a bloodhound virus from C Recycler oasis exe if Norton Antivirus can't repair it?

open windows exporer, go to tools, folder options,view, remove the check from "hide protected operating system files"you can then view the c:\recycler folder, right click on it and left click on empty. then go back nad place the check back in "hide protected operating system files"this should cure the problem

I am aware that the C:\Recycler folder on a Windows Operating System is where all the deleted files go. If you go to "Tools> Folder Options...> View >" in a explorer window and uncheck "Hide protected Operating System Files" you will be alerted with a box saying it is un davised to do this. Click ok and navigate to C:\ drive and you will see it and be able to navigate it. Also try this in command prompt... ">CD C:\RECYCLER>DEL OASIS.exe"

This is also possible in safe mode, to get into safe mode go when booting Windows press F8 repeatedly and you will eventually get a "advanced boot options" menu. Select "Safe Mode" and boot up like normal. You will get a box reminding you that you're in safe mode and you should login as Administrator. Then delete like any other file. I would advise restarting your computer straight away so you avoid any mistakes.

How do you remove Bloodhound Exploit 10 when Norton will not?

The latest updates for Norton can detect and remove this trojan. If it has already infected your computer, you need to manually delete any infected files and correct the affected registry entries. Microsoft has not to date issued a patch for this vulnerability see securityresponse for more details

I downloaded and ran CWShredder and it seems to have worked. I found it at: softpedia.com

However, I still cannot access search sites such as Google. I get a strange blue security page that I can't get past.

Try WWW.Symantec.com who have some information on this virus. I have tried removal by editting the registry to remove the default IE start pages and also the hosts file after a clean boot, but it did find its way back into the system. It clealy resides in another file which I have not yet identified. My next move is to remove IE and replace it with Netscape navigator. To the best of my knowledge the Trojan does not attack other browsers.

How do you remove the bloodhound packed virus from C WINDOWS system32 scvhost exe?

Here is how I have removed it for my previous several clients.

1) You know you have it if in your ctrl-alt-delete process menu you see a file called scvhost.exe PLEASE NOTE: SVChost.exe are normal. Please notice the difference.

2) The file may kill your ctrl-alt-delete window as well as your msconfig. If this is the case, go to your c:\windows and rename the taskman.com file to taskmgr.com and you will be able to use ctrl-alt-delete once more.

3) This "virus" runs under many different names. It seems to use some type of random character generation to re-create itself under some new names. It runs scvhost and another 2 perhaps 3 other processes/files. You have to end-process anything that seems out of the norm. This can be easier said than done if you are not used to playing with processes and you do not know them by heart. If in doubt, end-task everything that XP will allow (except explorer.exe). This should allow you to go the the net and Google any processes you are unsure of. If in doubt, end-process it. Once everything is end-processes, you will need to go through a list of what you end-processes (that you wrote down) and do a seach for files or folder using the ADVANCED search options. Make sure that you are searching for hidden files or folders. Delete the buggers when you find them.

3) Time for everyone's favorite game. REGISTRY HACKING! Lookup the nasty processes that you deemed to be little badies and delete them.... NOTE: PLAYING IN THE REGISTRY is *THE* most dangerous things you can do to your operating system. Do not do this without your mom's, dad's, girl friend's or your god's consent. How do you play in the registry? Here goes Start/Run/Regedit

This is the BRAIN of windows... You are in a matter of fact cutting part of its brain out. Do a search for scvhost.exe and delete it. Search for any other crappy little processes you find you are think are bad ones. Again, keep in mind that manually going into the registry is a stupid thing to do unless you know what you are doing.. Then again, there is only one way to learn; Right?

I realise that this DOES take more than your average basic PC knowledge to apply this "somewhat fix" but then again, I have yet to find anyone else with a fix for it.

This should get you on the net and should stop the virus from re-installing one of its 3-4 instances on every bootup.

Quesions? Please gmahttp://wiki.answers.com/wiki.phtml?title=How_do_you_remove_the_bloodhound_packed_virus_from_C_WINDOWS_system32_scvhost_exe&action=editil me at geek1101@gmail.com

How do you delete a bloodhound virus if Norton does not let you fix quarantine or delete?

Bloodhound isn't necessarily a virus. If Norton's "Bloodhound" technology finds a suspicious piece of code in a file it names it something like "Bloodhound.exploit.13" or similar. Remember Norton have a vested interest in frightening people. It can't remove it because it probably isn't a virus. Download free Antivirus software from Grisoft.com or www.free-av.com or similar and see if the virus still appears. You can delete the file yourself hold down shift and press delete in Windows explorer when the file is highlighted or leave it in quarantine.

blood houndBloodhound 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.

9/10 times it is nothing.... Sometimes it is picking up a vulnerability that a windows update covers..

Why would your computer restart after load the OS?

Rule of thumb, start with the Obvious. Sequence of Events as Described : 1.System will boot. 2.System turns off, randomly. 3.Antivirus software, Up to Date? 4.New Hardware installed, Memory module, or new Harddrive ,etc.? 5. Updates applied to system ? 6 Next Options> a. If Antivirus is run, no virus proclaimed, go to b] Hardware failure any screens with error messages ? if not, overheating of the power supply is possible, or fan failure, causing the processor or hard-drive to be automatically cutoff as a safety mechanism. Try cleaning out dust from your computer first, then listen carefully after bootup for fans kicking in. if no fan, it may be your problem. Replace it. Also, check your screensaver and hibernation settings in control panel, they could be initiating what appears to be a shutdown. Hope this helps. Answer insufficient power supply try to check ..? grounded mother board try to losen up your screw or putting a masking tape.....

How do you remove bloodhound packed from the C windows system msxmlpp dll file when Norton cannot remove it?

Reboot your system in safe mode and delete the dll.

I had a problem with that darn thing last night. I tried to go in safe mode and it wouldn't let me. It just keep telling me there was an error. So I had to completely re-download from the restore discs I got when I bought the computer. I just thank GOD I had those or I would be spending more money. I have also removed Norton from my computer and changed to McAfee for $2.95 a month. I don't know if this will help but I thought I would share my experience.

go to safe mode and del dll file

My Norton anti virus said that i may have a virus everytime it scanned my computer for a year. I just got rid of it. I upgraded to Ad Aware se 1:05. I ran the old program once a week but with the free upgrade it found 89 spyware and malware. I suspect that the malware was what Norton had found but could not remove it. You can find this free program at www.download.com or you can find it at www.komando.com. The reason that Norton cannot remove spyware and malware is because it most likely is not included in your version of Norton Anti Virus.
