Booting from anti-virus diskette(s)

Greetings,

I would appreciate it if anyone can give me detailed steps on cleaning the Virus (cch.w32.spacefiller) from my Win95 system. Where can I download the software (McAcfee Website ?) so that it all fits into a bootable diskette that I can boot from before cleaning the infected Win95 C drive

Would appreciate detailed steps on getting the anti-virus into a bootable disk or maybe two if the signature files can't fit into one diskette. And the steps to clean the C drive from the A drive.

TIA

The following URL will give you download access to a wide variety of antivirus software:
http://download.com/PC/Result/TitleList/0,2,0-d-78-95-b-1,00.html?st.dl.sub78.subs.sub95

One of the perferred packages is MacAfee virus scan 4 which can be downloaded from:
http://download.com/PC/Result/Download/0,21,0-62149,00.html?st.dl.tdtl.txt.tdl

I will get you some detailed instructions in a moment.

Here is the simplest free DOS-based procedure I can find:

1. Download NAVC10.EXE from Norton the URL is
       http://www.symantec.com/nav/index_downloads.html

2. Run the self-extracting utility in DOS or in Windows on a healthy PC.

3. See the readme.txt file for complete instructions on how to get your files on a floppy.   It is very simple.

Any question, just ask.

Good Luck!

That question is easy:

http://www.mcafee.com/
There you will look for and click downoads and look for the free dat files.

Also Download.com  search for the name "mcafee"

I download virusscan for NT from mcAcfee website, but it requires remote installation for NT server from client. I have difficult installing remotely. Why can't I simply install on NT server itself ?

Pls advise.

I am not versed in NT installation problems, but it would seem to me that this requirement makes no sense. There has to be at least on NT server to get it onto to start with. Perhapse there is another version for non-remote install that you have not found yet.  Check around some more.
