    Hmmmm,

    And they would effect a Linux CD?
    Technically, "yes"............... realistically, "no"

    Your malware could be in the "boot sector" ?

    Just theoretically, of course?

    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.

    Cpu Fried

    After reading through what he's posted im gonna go out on a limb here and suggest a Check of the cpuid limit option in his bios, I had a maddening problem out of a dell 8400 once where no matter what i did it took Ages to do anything.
    (mouse cursor would redline the taskmanager)

    Biostars its called CpuidMaxval Enable/Disable
    Dells its cpu compatiblity mode enable/disable
    Asus its Cpuid limit or 03h enable/disable


    Look for anything called cpuid limit or 03h enable/disable and make sure it is OFF
    or you will be waiting.
