    Just select all the files and Hit DELETE.

    And it will delete all the files.

    Also get rid of Kazaa, if u want P2P, download something like Ares.

    thanks for all your help. i have tried to remove kazaa using add\remove but it comes up with an error message
    kazaa media desktop2.1
    an installation support file could not be installed.
    the system can not find the file specified

    i guess the program is corrupted or something
    trust me i do want to get rid of it, its the source of all of these problems

    disable kazaa in your msconfig, if you know how to use regedit you can also get rid of it there then you can also get rid of kazza folder

    The compressed file explorer.exe within C:/documents and settings/user/localsettings/temp/wttu.exe
    is infected with bloodhound.w32.epvirus.

    now I have tried few suggestion from previous threads

    go into safemode & empty the temp, temporary internet & cookies folders & then run norton still in safe mode. also do an online scan with www.antivirus.com

    go to www.grisoft.com download AVG 7.0 free home ed should be able to heal file,software is all beta .and go to www.cnet.com and download adware se works good to remove spyware ie,data miners , tracking cookies.and donwload spyblster to block incoming junk. and try sygate for a firewall.

    the bloohound.w32.ep was made to get around nortons,try downloading firefox 1.0 and do not import settings from internet explorer .that way you will still be able to get online. bloodhound will try to take over your mac,bridg 32 dll.it will also change your pass word in your content advisor.to block your internet access.did you see a gray box pop up with red circle and a white x in the middle.if so you have more then 1 virus. bloodhound has friends that come with it most of the time.

    so you mean,there is no way to get rid off that virus?
    im using netscape for browser because since i found out about that virus internet explorer its been acting up.
    also its not when im online i get online fine , is only opening programs like messenger,printers etc etc and shutting down computer thats is been too slow.
