Hi Barbara,
 
F-Prot dos no longer fit on a 3.5" floppy.
Of course you could download on your 
unit and copy to cdrom and then load
on friends' unit and install.

Have you tried the free on-line checks:
 
 
online virus scanners; they will scan all the files on your hard drive for a
virus.

It needs to download a few file so as to activate the scan so you may see a
message like this.

I'm sure I read here that somebody was using that f-prot antivirus..I need
some info about it. My problem is I have another computer I'm working on<its
not online> and it has that empire monkey-stone monkey virus. I read a page
at f-secure.com about getting rid of this virus, so I am looking for the
download for a free version..just to clean this virus out of the memory of
this old dinosaur. I went to download areas and went to ftp area,,but Im not
smart enough to figure out exactly what I need to download or do. Currently
I have nothing on that harddrive, tried format, fdisk/mbr..etc...<which
probably was a mistake, but tried anyways> any help would be greatly
appreciated. I did clean my setup discs within my good machine with avg.. so
fire away...Barbara
