This procedure will cause you to loose all data on the hard drive,but you will need to use the FDISK /MBR,scan the drive with the anti virus ERD,then proceed to re-partition and reformat the hard drive,reinstall software.Hope this Helps

NAVW32.EXE is the Windows interface and scanner. It can be run with command-line switches, typically from the Start menu Run command, to override configuration settings.
NAVW32 [[pathname] options] pathname Any drive, folder, file, or combination of these is scanned. If you want to scan a combination of items, use a space to separate the items. You can use wildcards when specifying pathnames for a group of files (for example, NAVW32 A:C:\MYDIR\*.EXE).
/A All drives, except drives A: and B:, are scanned. Network drives are scanned if the Allow Network Scanning option is selected in the Scanner Advanced Settings dialog box.
/L All local drives, except drives A: and B:, are scanned.

/S All subfolders specified in the pathname are also scanned.
/M[+|-] Enables (+) or disables (-) scanning of memory (for example, NAVW32 C:/M or NAVW32 /M-).
/MEM Only memory is scanned.
/B[+|-] Enables (+) or disables (-) scanning of boot records (for example, NAVW32 A: /B+ or NAVW32 B: /B-).
/BOOT Only the boot records of the specified drives are scanned.
/NORESULTS No scan results are reported on screen.
/DEFAULT Returns settings to how they were when you received Norton AntiVirus.

/HEUR:[0|1|2|3] Set Bloodhound(tm) sensitivity (0 disables).

Also try the following::


Also:
Shut down your computer.
2 Turn off your computer using the power switch.
3 Use your Rescue Boot Disk created when you installed Norton AntiVirus or the Norton AntiVirus Emergency Boot Disk that came with the product.
4 Turn on the PC. An A prompt should appear. Either follow the prompts for running a scan or type NAVDX from the A prompt.
5 If you do not have Rescue Disks or the Emergency Boot Disk, you may use a write-protected Windows 95/98 Startup disk or a 7.1 or higher Dos system disk to boot your computer. If this is also not available, get someone to create a boot disk for you with Dos 7.1 or higher. Once you have restarted the computer, you will need to run Navdx.exe from the directory onthe hard drive where you installed Norton AntiVirus

In my experience Boot Sector Virus' can be pretty nasty indeed. I would also like to remind you that it is highly probable that any floppy that you boot to until you finally remove this virus will inherit it in its boot sector as well. So, remember to boot to this disk only once because it too will have to be cleaned or disposed of later.
