Can anyone help with possible whistler@mbr.
I am an experienced it professional and no stranger to malware removal of all types, in fact I am generally quite expert in this field, but this one has me stumped.#
I am running W7 ultimate
Avast detected Whistler@mbr on my system
however there are none of the reported symptoms at all.
no unusual processes, files, nothing. in fact my pc is running pretty much perfectly!
However when i run avast or mbrcheck whistler is reported as being in the mbr on my 2 data drives. but my bootable system drive shows clean and a clean w7 mbr!
GMER doesn't see anything nor do any of the other tools, MBAM, HijackThis, sophos etc
I have used both manual and mbrcheck as well as a few other recommended tools from well known and respected sourced to fix all 3 yet there it is still.
No IE problems however i generally just use Opera for browsing and have no other browsers of any sort.
other than this my system is totally clean and has been so since install 2 years ago.
I am almost convinced this is a false positive of some sort.
Any ideas anyone?
