Virus Scan Tool

Does anyone knows about a good dos style virus scan, just like the old scan.exe tool from mcafee. I'm trying to boot a XP computer with a live CD and them run the scan tool with the virus definitions updated. I was told that mcafee does not provide such application anymore.

Thx

You can build a Bart PE disk with McAfee Command Line Scanner and/or Stinger plug-ins.  That would be my preferred option.

The Bart PE site gives an FTP link.  This is McAfee site link.

If you are interested in non-networked PCs, Stinger would be a better choice.  The command line scanner is an enterprise product -- translated as pricey.  Stinger is free.
