    Will updating an A-Bit BIOS to the latest BIOS remove any Virus that is in the BIOS. And what BIOS Viruses are out there and what can you do to get rid of them?

    If your BIOS is infected overwriting it with the latest version of the real one will overwrite the problem. Most of these however render your PC useless to the point you cannot even boot. SOme of the names are Chernobyl, PE_CIH, Win95.CIH, Win32.CIH, W95/CIH.1003, CIH.Spacefiller
    Most AV sites have removal tools
