    Please explain what the following error message means and how I should resolve this minor annoyance:
    "Error occurred while scanning MBR sector of the 1. physical disk. Error reading sector." This error message was found in the "NOD32" module under "scanning logs" when I initialized the module. Thanks

    Hi rgibsons2005, welcome to Wilders.

    You are receivng the MBR error messages because:

    1. you perform a system scan under the account of a limited user
    2. you have a special boot manager or suchlike program that alters boot sectors installed
    3. you use a card reader while no card is actually inserted.

    Cheers :D

    You will also get the error if you have an external storage device, such as a JumpDrive or external HD. I have seen this same error on several different machines because of what I listed above :)
