????? Dos Virus scan

Post by John » Fri, 14 May 2004 23:12:54


Used to be able to do a virus scan from Dos. My daughters computer has gotten
infected from some place. Won't even let her boot in to desktop.

Is there a way or shall I say, a program or emergency disk that can be run from
Dos just for such an instance of this kind.

McAffee used to have an Emergency Dos Boot disk.

Appreciate the help & info.

Hi John

Have far into the boot process does the PC go - i.e. what do you see on the
last screen? Most AV programs would have an option to create a 'rescue'
disk when installed. Was Mcafee already installed on the PC? If so, your
PC supplier should have provided the rescue disk for you.
