    Default 1 MBR: PhysicalDrive0 detected, how do I remove?

    Hi, I did a quick rootkit scan and SD detected MBR: PhysicalDrive0. I then did a deep scan and nothing came up. I'm at a loss on how to remove this from my laptop. Could you please assist me on how to do this?

    Thank You

    I'm so sorry, I don't think I fully understand how to use the Reports section in SpyBot SD.

    OK. How is the computer running, any issues you've noticed?

    The RootAlyzer log is usually stored here: C:\ProgramData\Spybot - Search & Destroy\Logs

    My computer runs slow, will freeze up, says "not responding", and will blue screen (kernel memory dump) maybe once every few weeks or so. I did clean out other unwanted items last week and have seen a bit of a speed up. I'm just concerned about the MBR thing that the rootkit scan found. I looked at the report and it still keeps saying the same info as the first report that I posted. Here's another one, hope it is something that will help.

    Hello,

    I'm sorry, but that is not the RootAlyzer.log , that is the Checks.log.

    I understand that was the check log. My RootAlyzer.log is showing exactly like the first one I posted. No matter how many times I run the scan and get the report, it's blank.

    Hello My3Angelz,

    For someone to take a look at the system please start a topic in the Malware Removal Forum and a volunteer analyst will advise when available.

    First see that forum's FAQ which also includes instructions in post #2 on how to provide DDS and aswMBR logs, which are used in the preliminary analysis.
