Yea thats what I thought I'd do. I've already got it downloaded here and will 
get it ready to work on the other one. and the other one isn't a friends ..its 
one of my pastime projects..i like to recycle old computers that are discarded. 
So decided thought Id get busy and do some cleaning out<gutting old computers 
and gathering parts> and trying to reorganize my corner in my living room. I 
did manage to get rid of about 100 floppies or so..ones that werent 
important..and kept the ones that someday soon i will burn to cd..so from one 
little thing to another..

  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.


      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 away...Barbara
