View Full Version : Boot Record Changed



06-01-2002, 01:37 AM
Help please, I just updated and ran my anti virus ....norton...and it has brought up an alarm stating that my boot record has changed. This has happened in the last 4 days and I cannot think of anything I have done that would affect this. The only program I have installed is system mechanic and I have run all the tests etc that it can do. Would this somehow affect my boot records or is it a sign of something more sinister??

Chances are that System Mechanic has changed something in the boot sector, to 'optimise' it. Probably nothing to worry about.

Thanks dave...after reading all the news about viruses etc and the nasty things they do I get a bit paranoid at times...
