    FDISK /MBR X5 MAY WORK BUT THESE IS NO GAURANTEE TO GET RID OF A VIRUS UNLESS YOU FDISK AND FORMAT THE DRIVE WITH FORMAT /U

    Hi KrzyPrk,
    He is a def. :emulator

    A hardware or software device that performs like something else; for example, a printer that emulates a Hewlett Packard printer so a computer can communicate with it through a Hewlett Packard printer driver, or a Macintosh that emulates a PC so it can run PC programs.In communications, terminal emulators allow computers to connect with different kinds of networks. Looking for a solution to your virus. Also as RCSTechnology has stated that info will help greatly!
