    Something odd here. Tonight NOD32 reported it had detected a threat: "MBR sector of the 2. physical disk - probably unknown TSR.BOOT virus". After some experimentation, I realized that this only happened if my music player, an iriver Clix2, was connected to my computer. If I disconnected the player and ran the scan again, no threats were reported. Then if I reconnect the player, NOD32 decides there is a threat again.

    I tried the Trend Micro online scanner for a second opinion, and it did not detect any threat.

    So, I am hoping this is just a weird false-positive. I could not find anything online about the NOD32/Clix2 combination, so I apologize if this is old news.

    Should I be concerned about this?

    If you believe it was/is a false-positve detection, you may submit the log file or file to ESET

    Hello,

    In order to investigate this, ESET's virus lab will need to examine a copy of the master boot record from your iRiver Clix2 digital media player.

    I will send you a private message with further information.

    Regards,
