It's not uncommon for anti-virus programs to give false positives.
DISAGREE, use a top notch program and it will become a rarity.
You, as the previous respondent, makes an assumption ("false positive") without providing any basis to back up your claim.
Have you any knowledge regarding the trojan and file, or do you just make statements to potentially mislead others?
I work in the IT environment and have seen lots of "false positives" even with high end commercial antivirus . There is no perfect software, much less in one as complex as an antivirus. I am not saying to be wreckless now, but many people here know about computers and the lenovo software enough to say it is most probably a false positive.
If you feel a little nervous you can verify the results with other antivirus software scanners to make sure. I would recomend online solutions, so that you do not need to uninstall your actual antivirus. I would recomend TrendMicro House (http://housecall.trendmicro.com/
) or Kaspersky online (http://www.kaspersky.com/virusscanner
You can also Google (or Yahoo or Bing; your preference) for Bootsect.exe; the file in question.
If you still feel paranoid or worried, you could do a fresh install of windows and as you were suggested before, not reinstall the one key recovery software.
One word of advice; do not treat bad the people that sincerely are trying to help you.
Take care and good luck,
