I just discovered that "Bloodhound" is a trademark of the Symantec Corporation. Maybe it is no coincidence they are the only ones to detect these supposedly infected files.
Yes that's what they call it when their heuristic finds something. I expect it's a false positive.
Can I simply disable Symantec, and install and run AVAST for your purposes?
You can try but last time I did that Avast didn't want to run. Problem is that there are a lot of drivers loaded by Norton and these don't get stopped even when you tell it to stop. (You might be able to use Autorun to uncheck everything that says Symantec and then reboot. That should stop the drivers from loading.) Norton isn't working right anyway so I don't think it's much of a loss if you can't find the license.
To attach something you must click on Add Reply then on Browse then point at it then click on Open (file name will show up after the Browse button where it normally says No File Selected. then Attach this File.
The DNS error was probably caused by Admin doing some tweaking. It has cleared now so hopefully he has it the way he wants it.
