Boot sector virus

  1. Just scanned my system using avista:
    Starting master boot sector scan:
    Master boot sector HD0
    [INFO] No virus was found!
    Master boot sector HD1
    [DETECTION] Contains code of the BOO/Sinowal.C boot sector virus
    [NOTE] The boot sector was not written!

    I want to know how to remove this sinowal rubbish. I got the virus alert a few weeks back and recent scans gave nothing and today I have it again.

    Boo/Sinowal.A

    Try Dr web Cure it. I used it for Boo/Sinowal.A.

    Worked 100%

    Hope it useful
