Wow, it's been a while since I've heard of someone's machine getting infected by a boot sector virus.
Any idea where it came from?

It started showing up when I installed new Catalyst Drivers for my video card. I cleaned my boot sector, wipe my drive clean reformat installed windows, installed antivirus installed all windows updates all was well then I installed drivers for my ati videocard and soundacard then antivirus program says I have a boot sector virus so one of the drivers may be the culprit...

Hello all I found the problem it was a motherboard chipset driver! After a fresh install no problem, as soon as I installed the driver my antivirus poped up with the boot sector virus. Uninstalled driver and all was good again, downloaded driver from an alternate site reinstalled and all is good again...

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
