I want to get rid of the eek (b) virus in my MBR. N orton identifies  it and claims that it has cleaned but it is not the  case.

The virus lives on.

I beleive that this is the problem for my having a zombie E drive that gives the error "MS dos compatibility mode".The drive has 0 bytes . And the OS considers it unformattable. My current E drive has been moved to F by the "Virus"? I am guessing.

I discovered this when I added a new disk.
