    i have been hit with a sucker punch,i was sent an email from my bank about my account being under investigation for non payment of an overdraft facility and i thought it looked genuine but to make sure i forwarded it on to the bank in question to see if this was sent by them,they replied and i opened the message and i was sent a root virus,it went unseen by my mcafee security suite and i cannot for the life of me get rid of it,i cannot start windows and it just keeps looping back to safe mode screen,it won't start in any safe mode,recovery console,the bios won't boot from cd/dvd rom,then my 4 year old daughter picks my memory stick up and must have been carrying static because it is not recognised and to cap it all i cannot load my studio mx2004 on my other pc because the f*****g disk is scratched,does anybody know how i could remove a root virus without formatting the disk.....:mad:

    Mcafee takes up a fair few resources, have you tried nod32 it takes up very little compared to the big ones and has never let me down.

    Pretty cheap at £25 a year,

    the enterprise version of mcafee is slim and light, the beauty of mcafee is you can perform free dat updates on either home or enterprise without purchasing any definition licence update (legally of course).
