I'm trying to recover a Win98 system that appears to have an infected MBR. Problems started with "Congratulations, you won" audio. System was shut down and rebooted several times. Currently it will not boot -- it starts, does POST self-test, then goes into the weeds. I used a Dell Resource CD to boot it into DOS, and ran fdisk /mbr, but it still would not boot. In further research I've learned that fdisk /mbr might have been a bad thing to do. Can anyone tell me what my options are at this point? Is there a utility I can use to create a bootable floppy that can do the necessary MBR uncorrupting?
