|Disinfecting viruses with the DOS scanner in Windows Me|
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.
|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.
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:
