form virus in boot sector
Posted on 2000-05-18
when i tried to install Norton antvirus 2000 on a pc running windows 95 it said I had the form virus in the boot sector and to boot from the provided floppy to fix it. when I did this it said it was loading windows 98. it then said "The compression driver cannot be setup correctly get a version from your vendor that is compatible with this version of windows" It then said you have the form virus in the boot sector do you want to fix it. the results will be irreversible. I answered no then it started doing a scan disk and hung when it got to c:\program\microsoft publisher\wdbimp.dll. I renamed it & copied the same file from another pc and tried again but it still hung.
now for the questions:
must i have a floppy that is windows 95?
do I really need a new compression driver or is that message connected to the win 95/98 issue?
Is it ok to answer yes to the fix form virus?
any clues on the wdbimp.dll issue?
hope someone can help
