MBR Fixer

I need a program that fixes the master boot record or any boot viruses that I can run from a cd. My computer can't see the C drive, so I cant use a disk. It only works from cdrom.

Anybody know of a program?

I use MBRtool. Tread carefully it is a powerful command line tool which means can be easily mis-used.

Also the authors info.

I usually just have it re-write track 0.
MBRtool /WT0 /DSK:0 - will wipe track 0 on disk 0

But it can also copy the backup MBR to the primary one if the backup is intact. It also makes mbr backups, etc.

I usually use a windows 98 disk. At boot I put the ol' fdisk /mbr then hit f3, return to repeat a couple or times ..
