so actually how SONAR works? there's just vague discussions on it's similar to HIPS, and just an enable/disable option in manual scan, how to configure it and what's the impact on performance? there's no way can find the descriptions from within norton mamual.
But that's correct. It is sort of a HIPS. and Bloodhound is almost the same as Antibot

I have a refrence to "Bloodhound.SONAR.1" in the "Security Risks" section of the activity logs (NIS2008). Is this a threat or a legit part of NIS? Does anyone know what "a.exe" is?

It is real. a.exe is the name of the malicious executable.
If no software on your computer is malfunctioning, then the risk was probably real. I would highly suggest that you upgrade to NIS09, free of course, just for follow-up.
Run the Norton Removal Tool:
When you restart, you will be be prompted with a browser window to download the latest version of Norton.
