MessageHi 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.


    Norton Web Services
    Go to this page and click on Scan for Viruses


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

    "The Scan for Viruses uses an ActiveX program to scan your
computer. The download is approximately 1.5MB and can take
about 10 minutes over a 28.8 modem.

    The scan can take more than 20 minutes depending on the
speed of your computer and the number of files that you have.
Please do not browse away from this page unless you intend to
abort the scan.

    Downloading Scan for Viruses controls. Please wait...

    During the download, you might see one or more messages
asking if it is OK to download and run these programs. Click
Yes when these messages appear.

    Note: Scan for Viruses does not scan compressed files"

      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
