    All of a sudden I'm having difficulty booting up my PC. How can I check for a boot-sector virus? :doubt:

    1 Boot yr computer with a clean floppy.This is the most important stemp.

    2 Use the antivirus tool that you installed to scan the boot-sector of the harddisk.Please confirm yr antivirus tool can work in DOS system.

    3 If on virus found,maybe you should update yr antivirus database,and then,do the stemps up again.


    I'm a Chinese,and welcome to Beijing. ;)
