I have some sort of rootkit virus and am trying to remove it. What I've found using fdisk, is that there is a nested Dos partition on the drives and I get error messages such as the one listed below. I've tried removing the partition and wiping the drive clean but it doesn't seem to be doing the trick.
Can some one explain what is causing the error message seen below, "Partition 1 does not start on physical sector boundary" and how to fix it?
Note: This error is not specific to this particular partition and I see this regularly on any/all partitions that are infected.
