    Ok here is my problem, I have a virus in my master boot record!! I am running Windows XP Professional on a compaq computer with a Western Digital hard drive. I have throughly been through this site and followed alot of the advice given to others with no success. I have first repaired the master boot record using the XP cd and then replaced the MBR neither one of these worked either. I REALLY DON'T WANT TO FORMAT AND RELOAD my system.

    Can anyone please tell me how to get rid of this most annoying trojan????? The only real problem that I am expierencing is that it takes about 3-5 minutes to reboot the computer......I am extremely frustrated at this point and time.....

    HELP ME PLEASE!!!!!!
