Hi, i have been reading this thread; https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=104854 i was wondering how easy it is to detect and remove a MBR Trojan etc from a general home machine? And does a general format really kill this type of infection and comprimise? If your antivirus or Trojan software isnt picking it up how could you manually detect it on your machine? I know alot of questions, but i am interested and would like to know for future reference, Thanks Avec · ''Master Boot Record (MBR)/Boot Sector Infector: A virus that infects the system's Master Boot Record on hard drives and the Boot Sector on floppy diskettes. This type of virus takes control of the system at a low level by activating between the system hardware and the operating system. An MBR/Boot Sector virus is loaded into memory upon boot-up, before virus detection code can be executed.''
