    The scanner log shows that it has not been cleaned or deleted, remains red. I have put the harddrive on an external adapter and have scanned it from mine as well, hoping to unlock the MBR, but no such luck apparently. Suggestions?

    I will probably have to just write a new MBR with fdisk /mbr i'm assuming, but wanted to see if there was a solution within the AV.

    Use fixmbr and fixboot commands. Read the warnings that you'll get before using these two...

    Is your NOD32 on-demand configured to attempt clean and then replace as shown in the screenshot

    What about right clicking in the red colour when NOD32 reports this and see the actions available

    The aforementioned option doesn't relate to hard drives, simply the operating system blocks access to system areas so NOD32 cannot do anything.

    Mmmm, thats not too good is it? Hopefully version 3 will have the option to clean boot sector viruses.

    Hello,

    Have you tried mounting the hard disk drive directly to an ATA or SCSI interface and then cleaning it with NOD32 for DOS, or running an "FDISK /MBR" or "FIXMBR" command?

    Regards,
