Title: Disk 0 Master Boot RecordINFECTED: Alureon-G@mbr [Rtk]
Post by: ml6421@aol.com on April 17, 2011, 11:20:43 PM
I have a laptop with Vista Business. Alureon-G@mbr [Rtk] keeps showing up, and Norton Internet Security 2011 fails to see the Virus.  Symantec techs tell me this virus is a false positive, but I do not believe them.

How do I get rid of this virus - my Avast! BART disk cannot repair or delete

You could try the aswMBR.exe - AntiRootkit Scanner
