    Not through a cable, not through hardware, except for an infected hard drive. Only from a download or having/running an infected file.
    Please post as much information about your computer, operating system, and problem as possible, what happened prior to problems, etc. Too much info is OK, too little is pointless! Don't just say "My computer doesn't work. What's wrong?"

    After literally disappearing for 8 or so years because protection programs got so sophisticated they have recently reared their ugly head...i assume this is a result of the next generation of newbie hackers out there who have nothing better to do than keep us professionals employed.

          Then again if he in fact does have a bootsector virus chances are he can't get back...
