Hi

Is there a virus programme that I can download and run from within Puppy that will check for malicious software on my hard drive?

Cheers

Derek

Now get avast4workstation-1.0.8.pet at...

This is an on-demand virus scanner that works in Puppy Linux.
I like the way this works.

To eliminate the problem that happens when you attempt to update the Avast database [failure to update].
Add the following line of code = /sbin/sysctl -w kernel/shmmax=130000000
...To the file = /etc/rc.d/rc.local
