Fixing the MBR on Windows XP

I coerced myself into adminning a Windows XP for a relative, and when I started scanning it, I found a huge load of viruses and RATs. Wow. There was even something in the MBR. This gave me a lot of problem, because I now had to restore the MBR to get rid of the trojan.

How to do this? There is actually a great free tool here: It’s a lifesaver for Windows XP, which I am glad I don’t have to admin anymore.

There’s an alternative way to get data for the XP install from Microsoft.
