I don't know if this is coincidence (I tend not to believe in coincidence) but my XP Pro PC's master boot record appear to have become corrupted shortly after new definitions where automatically downloaded. If this wasn't the cause, the next like suspect is a Virus.
I have not been able to restore the partition as I want to try all options before wiping the partition and reinstalling XP and then having to install all applications. I guess there is no surefire way to tell if the partition is infected if I can not access it. It is not active and Partition Magic reboots when retriving info or checking for errors.
Anyone have any ideas on how to reactivate the partition and scan it? FIXmbr is what I was going to use but I can not get to the partition. Windows setup sees the partition as unformated.
