Hi,

My flatmate has a Dell laptop and every time she boots it up it gets past the BIOS then loads a fake "Dell System Update" page that beeps.

I'm assuming this a fake virus but (while writing this I've realized I haven't actually read what the page says - due to the LOUD beeping).

I removed the drive and booted up safemode on my laptop to run virus scans, it can see the drive but cant load anything and crashed when trying to explorer contents.

This leads me to believe its a boot sector Virus. Does anyone have any advice on how to fix and remove any viruses on the drive?

Thanks for your help!
