Polyboot.B should be handled by Panda ActiveScan
Polyboot.b - is a boot virus that does not have any destructive effects, which infects the boot sector of hard disks (Master Boot Record or MBR) and floppy disks (Boot).
Polyboot.B goes memory resident in order to infect the MBR of the hard disks in the infected computer and the Boot of the floppy disks used.
Once the computer is infected, Polyboot.B infects all floppy disks used in the computer, provided that they are not write-protected.
The only indication that Polyboot.B has infected a computer is that it has problems starting.
If Panda ActiveScan or your antivirus detects Ptakks.216 during the scan, it will automatically offer you the option of deleting it.
Make sure System Restore if temporarily disable.
Windows XP Pro SP1a - most critical update - NTFS (are there any differences if using FAT32? --- in term of removing the virus...)
Someone said, I should run Fdisk /mbr, but somewhere in MS site said something about NOT using Fdisk /mbr.
What should I do to remove the virus?
