Hello anyone,
My symantec auto scan detected a security risk called bloodhound MalPE (4 entries). Each stated: the action category -left alone; risk type - heuristics; status - left alone; primary - clean; secondary - quarantine; action description - file left unchanged. Can anyone help me understand this info.?
Since that time, my computer has been extremely slow. My main concern is the status states it was left alone & the action description states it was unchanged. Does this mean it has not been removed? Is this causing the slow down?
My os is xp & any help on this topic would be greatly appreciated.

I have a windows xp machine with the same issue. Symantec AntiVirus Notification says it is in C:\System Volume Information\_restore. Before this came up I had turned off system restore and run combofix, malwarebytes, and spybot search & destroy to clean up fake antivirus trojans and downloaders. Thought I was going to be about done the the Symantec notice popped up again.

What do you think?
