VirusZ III

Hi all,

I decided that I wanted to check all my old Miggy floppies for any viruses, so I'm going to transfer the ADFs to the PC and scan then with VirusZ III which I set up in WinUAE.

Now, I THINK it's set up, but I'm not 100% sure, so I was wondering whether there were any fake virus files that I could plant on an ADF and see if VirusZ picks it up. I'm sure I heard a mention of one on a website but I've forgotten where it is. Also, what file is equivalent to 'dat' files in McAfee, that will keep virus definitions up to date?

Thanks.

WindowsKiller also developed a windows based scanner:

As for VirusZ III, the disk scanning option seems to work ok for me - just be warned that it has problems in certain situations with really long filenames, like those found in TOSEC collections.

"XVS.library" is the one with virus definitions.
Get the info you need regarding libs from here:

k thanks WindowsKiller's download site seems to be down at the moment though, and I can't seem to find anything on Google. Does anyone have a link to download it, or know when WindowsKiller's link will be back up?
