    Hi all,

    When i tried to scan files using NOD32 v2.5 it gives me this error...

    "Error occurred while scanning active boot sector of the 1. physical disk. Error reading sector."

    I have also attached the full log image as below;

    Tried to scan single files of different extensions but all results in the same error. Have not done a manual scan on files since installing it since i only use its auto-protect features.

    Its a notebook running win xp sp2 (not dual boot) but without any card reader or printer attached to it. Only have a mouse attached via usb

    Any help?

    I have the same error, except that mine says 2.physical disk. On my machine it is caused by the fact that my zip drive has no disk in it. You will find this to be the cause of your error as well. You have some sort of removable disk that is not inserted. This error has been in NOD32 for a long time now, but it should not be anything to worry about.

    Thanks for that, so the virus scan will be functioning as normal even though it displays this message? I don't have any external card reader or drive attached to my notebook, only an external mouse.

    I'm glad theres nothing to worry about.

    You probably have some partitions set up on your hard drive. You can check by looking here:

    * Start
    * Control Panel
    * Administrative Tools
    * Computer Management
    * Storage
    * Disk Management

    If you have 2 or more partitions setup, it's certainly why you're seeing the message in the Scanning Log. You could try a program like Partition Magic to remove them, but if the partitions need to be there for a reason (ie: they were setup by the computer's manufacturer), then you'll probably have to leave things how they are and just ignore the message each time you run a scan with NOD32. It won't affect the scan or your machine adversely.

    I don't think this can be solved with an update for NOD32
