Disinfecting viruses with the DOS scanner in Windows 98

Before you perform the command-line scanning, please make sure that F-PROT Antivirus is using the latest virus signature files. For detailed instructions, click here.

  1. Open the command prompt (Click Start > Run and type command).
  2. At the command prompt type:
  3. c:[ENTER]
    cd\[ENTER]
    cd progra~1[ENTER]
    cd fsi[ENTER]
    cd f-prot[ENTER]
    f-prot c: /disinf /auto /report=dosrep.txt[ENTER]

    The command, c: /disinf /auto /report=dosrep.txt scans drive C: and automatically disinfects infected/suspicious files. Then creates a scan report named dosrep.txt (user defined report name). To view your scan report, browse "C:\Program Files\FSI\F-Prot" (default location) and open "dosrep.txt". Please note that the scanning must be done for each drive individually. For further information, see Command-Line Scanner scanning switches.

  4. When the scan has completed, restart Windows.
  5. NB! If the scanner simply runs for about 2-3 seconds and then reports that it only scanned the boot sector and mbr it is likely that you did not put a space in between the commands. There is a space in front of all the commands, i.e. SPACE /disinf SPACE /auto etc.

    If you prefer to view the Command-Line Scanner menu, type f-prot.exe at the last command and then use the arrow keys on your keyboard to navigate. The menu looks like this:
