Hello all,

A couple of weeks ago I got a virus somehow and ever since its drove me mad!

I've run Norton and Microsoft spyware and everytime they both remove suspect files but Im still getting the following message when starting up "Norton antivirus had detected a virus,
object name: C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\WININET.dll
virus name: Bloodhound.W32.EP
Action taken: Unable to repair file.

That is the message I'm getting but the trouble is it keeps changing my homepage to something where you have to click yes to view the page and its an addition dialer being premium rate but its also downloading a programme called "World Antispy" which I close when it auto runs.

But how can I get rid of this virus being Norton wont do anything about it????

Anyhelp would be much appreciate,

Many Thanks

Try Ewido click here and a² click here

Update each of them before scanning.

wininet.dll is a valid system file which has been targeted of late.... I suggest you go click here explain your symptoms and post a hijack log as this file will need to be replaced when the virus is cleaned from your system.
