What is scanning for virus and computer's message states boot charged. Do you ignore or restore to original booot record?

Question

When I try to scan my computer for viruses I get a message that my boot record has changed and now I have 2 boot records. It says I have a choice of ignoring it and scanning or restoring to my original boot record. If I chose to restore and do that, will it erase any thing on my hard drive orwipe out any of my files. I am using Norton Internet Security Version3.0 and it is always automatically updating. By the way I have never found a virus on my computer,and had not added any programs onto my before that. Thanks in advance hope you can help me out. Also you have agreat radio show , I'm a faithful listener. Ron
