13 year old virus attacks modern PCs running Vista
German laptop maker Medion has released somewhere between 10,000 and 100,000 PCs with the boot sector virus preloaded for your convenience. Stoned.Angelina was first reported in 1994, and hasn't really been seen in the wild since 2001.
The computers all include BullGuard anti-virus software, which will pleasantly point out if you have an infected computer. But since the virus is in the boot sector, BullGuard is unable to remove the problem without your intervention.
Fortunately the virus is considered pretty much harmless. And BullGuard has made a tool available that can fix your boot sector.
