Hello Vagelism22678,

welcome to puppyworld. If you scan the Security/Privacy subsection, of the forum's Additional Software section, you's see several threads regarding anti-virus apps. However, AFAIK, they are for scanning windows partitions, not linux. There are also several antivirus engines that provide freeware linux programs, e.g. Avast.

Which version of puppy are your running?

There are a lot of last available versions.
Is it so difficult to report which one exactly and eventually report the download site?
