As Bob indicated, please write protect your floppy and make sure you check
all your floppies for the virus, as it likes to spread this way so you can't
get rid of it.

Hi Barbara,
 
I don't know what to suggest.  Sounds like you have a bad 3.5" drive.   I
was going to search the net for ways to destroy the virus via the registry
keys via registry hack;   but you don't have registry keys.   One
possibility is to purchase a really cheap 56k modem and email the unit a dos
version of F-Prot.
 
One question;   after you repair these machines, what do you do with them?
 
Carl

Hi Barbara,
 
I deleted your 1st post which gave the name of the virus you are fighting.
What was it?
 
What is the version Windows on the computer with the virus?
 
Carl

Update-1st file from Dave was too old..needed new def..
then the one for dos. It detected the virus, but I couldnt seem to get it to
disinfect or delete. I printed out list of switches and such . Then went to
Frisk Software and found some faq about dos work.Also told me how to put it
on 2 floppies and use it from there. Also told how to get rid of boot sector
virus.. so tommorrow when my kids are behaving better I will attempt it
again .  Boy this virus work sucks!  Thanks for all your input..I feel like
Im making progress...just little by little..Barb
