This is why I only buy hardrives and motherboards that allow me to write protect sector 0. If the software doesn’t work, well then that’s just too bad. I’ll find an open source alternative.

I wouldn’t trust any software apart from operating systems writing to the master boot sectore of a hard drive! It may be fine if you’re running a Microsoft operating system, but for those who have dual boot systems, e.g. Linux or Solaris as their second OS, writing to the master boot sector will likely make the PC unbootable and give the appearance of a virus present on the system! :+ Most PC BIOS’s do master boot sector checks upon each bootup (unless you disable it) and if this sector gets modified, a virus warning will appear upon bootstrap. Imaging this problem being caused by a virus checker! I’m using AVG-freeware (free of ads/spyware) and this has already stopped a good number of viruses from coming in my PC :d
