I was hoping that someone would tell me that the AVG report was a false positive since none of the other antivirus progs showed up anything. However, I dont know if these included the MBR in their tests.
Also AVG has now stopped reporting this virus but I suspect that it is now for some reason skipping the MBR check.
Anyway, I'm a coward. I think I'll just reformat and re-install.
Thanks for that If I read the tech notes right a virus in the MBR in XP will be contained unless an older operating system is added. However, I just dont like the idea of something lurking there. How do I delete the MBR and will that cause problems when restoring XP? (I have the drive backed up to another drive with Acronis in case of disaster)
