Removing Boot.Malmo Virus with the command line ?fdisk /mbr?

by peter.williams In reply to How to remove boot malmo

Removing Boot.Malmo virus with the command line ?fdisk /mbr? works but be warned in case you have infected multiple hard drives in your system other than just your Primary hd0.

You may not see your data afterwards, should this procedure be performed on other hard disks other than your Primary hd0 (assuming this is were your O/S is installed).

If this is the case, do not panic. Do not even think about formatting or repartitioning your hard drive. Take a Kit Kat instead!

I hope you do have access to a second PC running a disk management tool (e.g MS Windows Disk Management Tool, or even a Third Part Application such as Power Quest Partition Magic). All you have to do is reassign your hard drive/s a letter (D, E, F etc) to gain access to your data (to make your disks active).

Ps:
For further reference about the command line ?fdisk /mbr?, you may find the following link handy: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/69013

Have Fun!
