hi, my name is Gastón and im from Argentina. Im currently using avg 6 free edition and yesterday when i performed a quick scan a message poped up saying mbr change as if it was a virus. What does this mean? Do I have to format my HD? I also discovered that my Starting page option within IE6.0 is not an available option anymore. Is this related to AVG message telling me MBR Change as a warning?
Im sorry for bothering you.
Thanks in advance,

Gastón

please do this

go to http://www.thespykiller.co.uk/files/HijackThis.exe and download 'Hijack This!'.
make sure it is placed into it's own folder, not a temporary folder. Then doubleclick the Hijackthis.exe.
Click the "Scan" button, when the scan is finished the scan button will become "Save Log" click that and save the log.
Go to where you saved the log and click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" then Paste the log back here in a reply.
It will possibly show issues deserving our attention, but most of what it lists will be harmless or even required,
so do NOT fix anything yet.
Someone here will be happy to help you analyze the results.

Thanks Derek, I already have that soft and I managed to solve starting page issue, but AVG antivirus keeps saying my MBR *partition Table* has been changed. Im afraid there is no way to restore it. Anyway, there are no major issues about it. I should have made a rescue disk before all of this happened. Thank you very much for your help.
