A boot virus is a virus that is transmitted during computer startup. A common way
of getting infected (by a boot virus) is to leave a floppy in your computer during shutdown. If that
floppy is infected with a boot-virus, your computer's harddisk will very probably be infected the next
time you start your computer.
This program runs on Windows 7, XP, Vista, 200x, NT, 9x and all 64 bit editions of Windows.
How does it work?
Bootminder will warn you if a floppy is in your A: drive when you are closing down Windows.
If you then take out the disk from that drive, the next time you start your computer, it will
not boot from that floppy. This reduces your chances of a boot-virus infection.
