    my computer was infected by the bloodhound.W32.EP VIRUS 32 files but I installed norton and it deleted them but I still can not open an internet explorer page, although the modem connction shows that it has connected to my isp.

    Can anyone help!!!!!!!!

    i think i have the same problem.. i had varied viruses and now nothing will open. Any reply would be nice. But i was told to run avg antivirus and housecall.trendmicro.com - to check for viruses missed by norton. I ran trend micro so far but not avg yet. So nothing still opens at this point. I will post if it works later.

    did the scan and it removed the virus but still the explorer won't start. I am about to give in and forget the whole scenerio and just use it as is.

    one of my friends can not go on the internet at all, like only msn messenger she cant go on internet explorer and that means she cant get a virus scan ( she is stupid and doesnt have one) so what can she do? or what should she do, Buy internet explorer?

    sounds like you might have to reformat ALL to get rid of it for good . if you do that make sure you download a GOOD virus scan norton NOT being one of them use trend mirco or AVG. Panda is good too.

    And you might want to be a bit more careful about what sites you visit.
