SORRY TO SAY BUTthis problem is serious
boot sector virus can also damage your hardware.
i recommend you to buy KASPERSKY or NORTON internet security available and scan your pc to remove it.
else
if you perform system restore regularly, there is a good news for you restore to date before you were infected

Master Boot Record


MBR Short for <i><b>M</b>aster <b>B</b>oot <b>R</b>ecord,</i> a small <a href="http://www.webopedia.com/TERM/P/program.html">program</a> that is executed when a computer <a href="http://www.webopedia.com/TERM/B/boot.html">boots up</a>. Typically, the MBR resides on the first <a href="http://www.webopedia.com/TERM/S/sector.html">sector</a> of the <a href="http://www.webopedia.com/TERM/H/hard_disk.html">hard disk</a>. The program begins the boot process by looking up the partition table to determine which <a href="http://www.webopedia.com/TERM/P/partition.html">partition</a> to use for booting. It then transfers program control to the <i>boot sector</i> of that partition, which continues the boot process. In <a href="http://www.webopedia.com/TERM/D/DOS.html">DOS</a> and <a href="http://www.webopedia.com/TERM/W/Windows.html">Windows</a> systems, you can create the MBR with the FDISK /MBR command. <br /> An <i>MBR virus</i> is a common type of <a href="http://www.webopedia.com/TERM/V/virus.html">virus</a> that replaces the MBR with its own code. Since the MBR executes every time a computer is started, this type of virus is extremely dangerous. MBR viruses normally enter a system through a <a href="http://www.webopedia.com/TERM/F/floppy_disk.html">floppy disk</a> that is installed in the <a href="http://www.webopedia.com/TERM/F/floppy_drive.html">floppy drive</a> when the computer is started up. Even if the floppy disk is not <a href="http://www.webopedia.com/TERM/B/bootable_diskette.html">bootable</a>, it can infect the MBR. <br />

6 Viruses

Often the first sign of a virus infection is instability. Some viruses erase the boot sector of a hard drive, making it impossible to start. This is why it is a good idea to create a Windows start-up disk. Go to

* Start-Settings-Control Panel-Add/Remove Programs

Here, look for the Start Up Disk tab. Virus protection requires constant vigilance.

A virus scanner requires a list of virus signatures in order to be able to identify viruses. These signatures are stored in a DAT file. DAT files should be updated weekly from the website of your antivirus software manufacturer.

An excellent antivirus programme is McAfee VirusScan by Network Associates ( www.nai.com). Another is Norton AntiVirus made by Symantec ( www.symantec.com).

RESET BIOS COM


1. Boot up your PC with a DOS Boot Disk or WINDOWS boot disc

2. At the DOS PROMPT or WINDOWS DOS PROMPT clear the master boot record with this command.

"fdisk /mbr" without the quotes.

This will remove the boot sector virus

3. Reinstall windows

It looks like you may have a boot sector virus. A boot sector virus is one that infects the first sector, i.e. the boot sector, of a floppy disk or hard drive. Boot sector viruses can also infect the MBR. All disks and hard drives are divided into small sectors. The first sector is called the boot sector and contains the Master Boot Record (MBR). The MBR contains the information concerning the location of partitions on the drive and reading of the bootable operating system partition.

When disinfecting a boot sector virus, the system should always be booted from a known clean system disk. On a DOS-based PC, a bootable system disk can be created on a clean system running the exact same version of DOS as the infected PC. From a DOS prompt, type:
    SYS C:\ A:\
and press enter. This will copy the system files from the local hard drive (C:\) to the floppy drive (A:\).
If the disk has not been formatted, the use of FORMAT /S will format the disk and transfer the necessary system files. On Windows 3.1x systems, the disk should be created as described above for DOS-based PC's. On Windows 95/98/NT systems, click Start | Settings | Control Panel | Add/Remove Programs and choose the Startup Disk tab. Then click on "Create Disk". Windows 2000 users should insert the Windows 2000 CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive, click Start | Run and type the name of the drive followed by bootdisk\makeboot a: and then click OK. For example:
    d:\bootdisk\makeboot a:
Follow the screen prompts to finish creating the bootable system disk. In all cases, after the creation of the bootable system disk, the disk should be write protected to avoid infection.

Once the OS loads, run your anti-virus software and it should clean the virus.

Should this not help, I'm afraid the only other alternative would be to reformat the HDD and reinstall XP again from a bootable disc.

Hope that helps..
