    Boot Virus???


    I just installed KnoppMYth and am restarting for the first time and i get this message. "Trend ChipAwayVirus has detected a boot virus on your hard disk, press enter for more information." I press enter and it tells me i need a clean bootable floppy disk. What do I do? This seems bad.

    I'd probably disable that in the BIOS. First thing I turned off on my machine years ago.

    Where did you obtain KnoppMyth? If it's from a trusted source, I'd venture a guess that it's a false hit.

    According to Distrowatch, http://mysettopbox.tv/ is the homepage for Knoppmyth.
    I would get the ISO from there if I were you.

    It was a link on the KnoppMyth website. If you go to the Mysettopbox site and go to download, the first link you see is the one i used.

    It could be some crazy 'anti-virus' on windoewz if you have it.

    In that case it is probably as Retired1af said.

    And you should probably just disable the boot sector virus checking, and that will get rid of the error.

    I haven't enabled any boot sector virus checking on any pc I have owned. And I have never had a problem.

    Me neither, no boot-partition virus checking here... It probably think LILO/GRUB is a virus...
