virus prevents Windows 98 from loading

By computab ·
How do you get rid of a virus when Windows can't load? you can't install antivirus software, and the option on Norton Antivirus 2001 to scan at bootup wont work as the virus definitions are dated july 2000, and many viruses are later. I need a DOSantivirus scanner with the latest virus signatures. Is there such a thing?

Using the anti-virus ERD,insert in floppy and boot the system,you should be able to run from the command prompt,to detect and clean the drive of any viruses,this hopefully will help

If you have access to another PC, go to WWW.CDROM.COM, navigate to the DOS anti-virus area and download the latest version of F-Prot. Boot the infected PC from a known CLEAN floppy, install F-Prot and run it.

Hi yes sophos at sophos.com do a dos virus program but I'm not sure if the dos version is free or not.

Hope this helps

Rather expensive, but I'll try it.
