I have now several times reformatted my hard drive and reinstalled Windows XP without getting rid of "Rootkit.MBR.Whistler(Boot image)". What to do?
Welcome! I moved your post to the Protection board.
not sure how to remove it, didn't find instructions at F-Secure page.
One thing you can try is the rescue CD it boots a Linux image and will scan the drive and might be able to remove.
Second option would be to install a Linux and rewrite MBR. Linux has better tools for that.
My personal experience.
Please refer the KB article below to disinfect MBR in Win XP:

Just to add an additional information from our Security Lab.
