Get a av that has boot sector protection. Once you've run a scan
with that, it will clear things out.
Please explain how boot sector protection is supposed to help
malware living in the BIOS. You do realize that it's the BIOS that
executes the boot code, don't you?
Assuming the BIOS actually is infected (which isn't too clear after
the OP's rather vague description) the appropriate way would be to
replace the BIOS chip or flash a clean BIOS onto it using a
device (*not* a PC that is booted with the potentially infected
BIOS). Also examine the supposedly infected harddisk from a clean
system, either by booting some live-CD after cleaning the BIOS or by
attaching the disk to another system (as secondary/external disk).
