I am using ESET NOD32 Antivirus. I am getting the following message saying that it detects this on three files, but cannot clean it:

MBR sector of the 2. physical disk - Win32/Mebroot.mbr trojan

Could you advise what to do and how serious this infection is?

Thank you,

I think it's best for your computer, to threat that infection. Just follow the steps on http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic34773.html (Preparation Guide For Use Before Using Malware Removal Tools and Requesting Help).

When post your DDS Log (+Gmer log) :
  • Do not post it at this topic or this forum but on http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/forum22.html
  • Be patient, it's very busy at this forum.
  • A professional expert will view your logs and will help you with that problem.
  • Do not use tools (like ComoFix) without professional experience/helper.
Good luck.
