    Hi, I downloaded a trial version of Nod32 a few days ago and am loving it so far. There is just one small problem in that everytime I scan a file or an automatic scan is run, I get the following message highlighted in blue on the log: 'Error occured while scanning active boot sector of the 2. physical disk. Error reading sector'.

    Is this anything to worry about? My computer is only a few months old and I'm hoping that the hard disk is behaving itself!

    Thanks in advance for any replies.:D

    Not sure if the below fits your situation but it might lead to something.

    Thanks for your help, but none of the above apply to me.:blink: I've noticed error messages in my Window error log and am wondering if I need to update some of my drivers. For example, 'The following boot-start or system-start driver(s) failed to load: PCIIde' AND 'The IPSEC Services service terminated with the following error: The authentication service is unknown'.

    It's a mystery, as I used Nod32 a couple of years ago and there were no error messages during scans. However, I had a Packard Bell PC back then, but am now using a much higher spec Fujitsu Siemens PC.

    Could you post a screenshot of your scanning targets? To the left of scanning logs in your screenshot.

    Are you saying that you don't use a memory card reader at all? Neither a printer with a card reader?

    I've got a cheapo Lexmark all-in-one printer/scanner/photocopier, but it doesn't have a built-in card reader. I was using a HP photo printer with card reader slots, but uninstalled it and its software a few weeks ago.

    Maybe another piece of hardware (CD Rewriter? USB device?) is falsely showing as a hard drive? Lol I'm clutching at straws here. Anyway, all other apects of scanning appear to be working correctly (I tested using the Eicar file), so I'll leave it be for now.;)
