I am encountered with boot virus. i am using windows xp home. when i realised that my sys is not restarting, i found no option than formating the whole and reinstall the OS. when i do so, i found a msg stating Boot virus when i am trying to load the recovery cds. i took it to the computer repair shop and they diagnosed the problem and removed everything from the system and reinstalled all the OS. worked fine for some weeks and then again started the problem. i tried to format my sys myself and found the boot virus again. i again went to the repair shop, they have done it again for freely and suggested not to copy the back up files without checking for viruses. i followed him and found nothing in the backups. so i reinstalled few of them on my system. this was 4 months ago. last month, my sys got crashed suddenly and some one suggested to format it. so i did so and didnot copied the backups in my system. now due to some problem, i formatted again and found the boot virus still. i dont understand how to eradicate that? i was confused. can anyone suggests how to remove boot virus permanently??
waiting for ur kind responses!!!!!
