"GenB" is short for "generic boot sector infector" and "GenP" for "generic partition sector infector". There are no such viruses at all. These are simply a "shorthand" that McAfee SCAN uses to tell you that it is sure there is something suspicious in your diskette's boot sector (GenB) or your hard disk's MBR (GenP) but it doesn't know precisely what.
Based on the settings of your F-Secure security product, it will either automatically delete, quarantine or rename the detected program or file, or ask you for a desired action.
