Hi

My other computer has been crippled by a virus. My IE will not display web pages, the my computer and my network places icons have been replaced with something called Folder, my norton AV has been disabled, the cpu is always at 100%. I have reinstalled Xp, but the virus is still there. Upon startup, norton displayed a message saying Bloodhound.W32.EP had been found but could not be removed, upon next startup, norton ceased to function. Is my only option a reformat? Please help!

Let us take a closer look at what is running on your PC. We'll need you to use a free diagnostic tool (HiJackThis) and post a log as a new topic in the Hijack This forum. It will get a better response there from the people most qualified to analyze logs.

Click the HijackThis Guide in my signature, download it and follow the instructions in the guide. Also see this post.

Most of what it lists will be harmless or even essential, DO NOT delete or modify anything yet! Someone will be along to tell you what steps to take after you post the contents of the scan results.
