Which function provides the SafeGuard Easy MBR protection? Does it protect the computer from MBR viruses?
The MBR protection function protects against viruses that attack the partition sector. If you have not selected "Ignore changes", the system checks the MBR for changes each time the system boots.
Following MBR protection options can set in the SafeGuard Easy administration:
No changes are made. The original MBR is not restored and the boot process continues without intervention.
If the MBR has been changed, a menu is displayed in which you can select the following actions:
- Default Action
- Undo Changes
- Ignore Changes
- Keep Changes
Select Default Action to run the "Default action". Select Undo Changes to restore the original status of the MBR from the internal backup. If you select Ignore Changes, no changes are made. If you select Keep Changes the current MBR is left unchanged but the internal backup is updated. The check takes place before the user logon. The menu only appears after a successful logon. This prevents an unauthorized user from specifying what should happen in such a case.
