how to delete a virus in bootsector?
I've always had winxp on my pc and always had trouble with it, so I decided to install Mandrake 10, and everything runs smooth. However, when i boot my system, the boot selector thing says I've got a virus upon booting, and tells me I should use a bootable floppy. I can of course start my pc from a linux or windows boot disk, but what happens after that? I'm guessing it's not a linux virus but a windows virus, but my windows virus scan doesn't notice anything.
Does anyone know how to get rid of this virus and explain it in noob language? It might solve all my winxp problems as well.
