Hi All,

I am running Windows XP SP3. I just got done doing a fresh install on a newly partitioned and formatted HD.
I was experiencing some issues with IE being redirected.
I then found references to the MBR program.
I ran it and I got an error - I will attach MBR log
user != kernel MBR !!!
error: Read The request could not be performed because of an I/O device error.

I have ran several different scans on the PC and found nothing.
I have the Kaspersky Internet Security 2011, but have not installed it yet - I am using AVG>
But, I booted the Kaspersky CD and ran it Virus Removal tool. It did not find anything.
I have run TDSSKILLER and it found nothing.
I have ran hijackthis and it did not find anything I could see either.


What could be causing this error and should I be concerned?
I am usually very good at this kind of thing and can eradicate almost every virus/maleware I run into.
This one, if it is one, is causing me problems.
I hope somebody can help.
Thanks.
Jerry

Hi,

The forum is busy and we need to have replies as soon as possible. If I haven't had a reply after 3 days I will bump the topic and if you do not reply by the following day after that then I will close the topic.

----------------------------------------------

Not necessarily a problem but let's check it with MBRCheck

Please download MBRCheck to your desktop.

1. Double click MBRCheck.exe to run it (Right click and run as Administrator for Vista).
2. It will open a black window, please do not fix anything (if it gives you an option).
3. Exit that window and it will produce a log (MBRCheck_date_time).
4. Please post that log when you reply.
