Monkey Virus

By kwbowman ·
I opened a MS Publisher file from a floppy andgot a memory error. I closed the program and made sure that there were no other programs running. Same problem again. I rebooted the PC only to find the error "Insert system disk". Using the "SYS C:" I was able to reboot the PC, however my second partion with all of my installed software was not to be found. I later discovered that I'd been hit my the Monkey virus. As I understand, this virus moves the boot sector to another location. At this point the drive is unbootable and according to FDISK has no partitions to display. Any Ideas on how to resurect the original partitions?
