joshi *** BSV (Boot Sector Virus)

Tags: Off Topic
I have machines which I am working on for
a Body which distributes the for the poor
"ComputerBank.

My test disks have become infected without
my knowing, and I now have a number of HDD
with track zero damage.

This viirus goes back to the early 90's and I am
looking for a program that I know exists, which
will rescue these drives..

Any help appreciated.
Few people have heard of the old BSV it seems

Many thanks

Eric Yeomans

According to http://www.nashsoft.com/virinfo/joshi.htm Joshi can be removed using a clean bootable floppy and typing FDISK /MBR. If that doesn't work, look here:

My Sincere thanks to the ppl who have responded to this question and helped
me fully clear the problem, with their comment about Fdisk and the mbr option.

Unfortunately I have not been able to
get back here before, to let you all
know the outcome.

Thank YOU again

Eric
