A buddy of mine asked me to reformat his hard drive for him on my computer. I threw in the hard drive and without opening it, I threw a Norton Virus scan on it. It came up with Boot.Tidserv.B and that it could not remove it. I formatted the drive. Now my Norton still continues to come up with Boot.Tidserv.B. I ran Norton Power Eraser and nothing came up and I also ran Norton FixTDSS as well nothing came up. The computer that the hard drive was from was a 32bit XP and my computer is a 64bit Windows 7. Is there a way i can be certain this virus did not make it to my computer? I am not to worried because I dont believe it did.
This is a copy of what Norton is saying.
No risks have been resolved
Type: Master Boot Record
Risk: High (High Stealth, High Removal, High Performance, High Privacy)
Status: Remove Failed
1 System Action
Drive 0x83 - Infected
As well I might add, my scans are coming up clean with a current up to date Norton as well it says removal failed when I go into Norton > Security History > Unresolved risks.
Thanks for your help and let me know if you need additional information.
