    Hi kakroto.

    New York Boot (NYB) is an old virus from the mid-nineties. It resides in memory and infects boot sector. It was quite common in floppy-times. What's the problem here? NOD should be able to remove this... o_O

    Crucial system areas such as boot/mbr sectors are protected by Windows. You might need to boot from a Windows installation CD and run fixmbr from within the recovery console window.
