    How can I remove boot sector virus?

    My Windows XP recently got infected with viruses and I had to format the system completely. Then I reinstalled Windows XP again and installed PC cillin antivirus. After a few days it detected a virus named VBS_FREELINK. I am unable to quarantine this virus although I can quarantine all other viruses. Eventually my windows files got infected and when I try to remove them, I receive a message saying all the files with viruses will also be deleted. How can I remove viruses without deleting windows files?

    Re: How can I remove boot sector virus?

    What is a boot sector virus?
    A boot sector virus is one that infects the first sector, i.e. the boot sector, of a floppy disk or hard drive. Boot sector viruses can also infect the MBR. The first PC virus in the wild was Brain, a boot sector virus that exhibited stealth techniques to avoid detection. Brain also changed the volume label of the disk drive.

    you should go for following Antivirus softwares :-

    1. Avira Boot Sector Repair Tool 6.32.255.0
    2. Avast
    3. Quick Heal
    4. Panda

    MANUAL PROCEDURE

    This procedure that i have described here will remove boot sector viruses from the master boot record (MBR) of hard disks. Since there are several boot sector viruses which also infect files, the method of disinfection using an AV scanner is preferable. It is also possible that in some cases this process will leave some or all of the hard-drive unreadable, the check described should lessen this danger but users are advised that success is not guaranteed. Users of multi-boot systems should be aware that this may leave all but the primary DOS partition unbootable.

    After a clean boot typeIR C:

    (Where C is the drive letter of your hard disk) Do you see a correct listing of what is on the hard disk? If so, you can usually manually overwrite the viral code by issuing the following command:FDISK /MBR

    Once this is done, remove all floppy disks from your machine, and reboot as normal.

    Dear friend sometimes it is impossible to repair the file without deleting it.

    When this case arises with the windows files then there is only one option to format the windows.

    Follow these steps to do so.

    1. At first install the avast antivirus and remove the cllint antivirus.

    2. Now update the virus database and register the antivirus.

    3. Now goto avast and schedule a boot time scan.

    4. restart your pc ad scanning will start.

    5. It will take a lot of time but do not skip it.

    6. After this foramt the windows and reinstall it.

    7. Do not forget to reinstall the avast.

    For further help post to my visitor massage.
