I have this stupid viris Trojan:DOS/Alureon.A

I use Microsoft Security Essential which detect it, tell me to restart system to clean it, but it still appear and is found by the anti virus

I get this as description

Category: Trojan

Description: This program is dangerous and executes commands from an attacker.

Recommended action: Remove this software immediately.

Security Essentials detected programs that may compromise your privacy or damage your computer. You can still access the files that these programs use without removing them (not recommended). To access these files, select the Allow action and click Apply actions. If this option is not available, log on as administrator or ask the security administrator for help.

Items:
boot:\Device\Harddisk1\DR1

Get more information about this item online.

Can anyone tell me how to get rid of this. I tried ESET but still nothing. Also formated harddrive and reinstalled Windows 7

mse is supposed to be able to deal with this so its possible u have a new variant,
best advice boot off the windows cd/dvd and remove the partitions on the hdd (don't just format them) reboot and redo the install.

Try running malawarebytes anti malware

You need to tell us your level of knowledge and computer info.
Googling "boot:\Device\Harddisk1\DR1" brings up several theories, mostly about the MBR (Master boot record) virus's.
As you have already re-installed W7, you could try a re-install again following the information below, and which you will need to understand before you try it. The punctionation is crap.
