you will have to use PM to delete that hard drive and also format, then delete that 7.8 mb boot sector so the virus could be removed
hey, the same thing happened to me on thanksgiving night, i restarted the comp and couldn't load to the sign-in screen.
couldn't even get into safe mode, kept rebooting..over, and over again.
so i bit the bullet, and put in my recovery disc, reformated the C:, which seemed to work, but i had games saved on a completely different HDD, and it erased them...ALL!
now i installed SP2 and updated all drivers. and it seems to be running stable now..but you raised a good point about deleting the boot sector... how do you do that?
i'm wondering if i still have some viruses on my system after that happened? my virus scan (PC-cillin) says i'm clear...
should i still be worried?
