I scanned my computer with Kaspersky's anyirootkit and it detected a "win32.backboot.gen" from the "device\harddisk2\dr12" directory. How do I remove it? It didnt give me a "cure" option. Should I reformat my computer?

I don't even bother fixing infections. Make sys images on a 100% clean system. Do backups and then restore backups. All antiviruses are bleepe, as per my experience. There are plenty of packers and cryters in the market that make old malware FUD. So, what is the point in even having an AV ?

So the best thing to do is reformat my pc?
