That is one of the reasons I use Norton Ghost. If I get something that I can't handle, what I do is use Norton Ghost to WIPE my entire "C" partition, then restore it from a "Ghost Image" file. Gets rid of ALL viruses and any other problems that might have turned up on "C" and restores it from a file made when it was working well.


Apart from that you could possibly try using MBR Wizard Suite, which is a program that enables you to clean up your Boot Track.

A boot rootkit is better removed safely by following this Preparation Guide and post in a new topic.
Let me know if all went well.
