Description

This article is from the comp.sys.acorn FAQ, by Paul Vigay with numerous contributions by others.

6.2) Where can I obtain a virus killer?

Various virus killers are out there. Here is a, probably incomplete, list of those available.

*** Killer

Killer is distributed by Pineapple Software. Who can be reached at:-

Pineapple Software, 352 Green Lane, Ilford, Essex IG3 9JS England. Tel. +44 (208) 599 1476 Fax +44 (208) 598 2343 via email:-sales@pineaple.demon.co.uk support@pineaple.demon.co.uk or virus@pinesoft.demon.co.uk

Or if you need a German version of the program you can contact Uffenkamp Computer Systeme at:

Gartenstr. 3, D-32130 Enger. Tel. +49 (5224) 978075 Fax +49 (5224) 978076 via email:- ucsorder@ucs.de or usupport@ucs.de

Early versions (up to 1.26) are PD, but should not be used now as they are ineffective against the new crop of viruses that have subsequently appeared since it's release.

*** Slayer

Slayer is a freeware virus killer available from Kiwisoft. It can be downloaded from http://www.kiwisoft.co.uk/software/slayer/ It has the advantages over !Killer in that it is free, and also it is very fast.

*** VZap

This is a shareware product released by Paul Vigay. It can be downloaded from Paul's www site at http://www.vigay.com/software/vzap.html and is updated as and when new viruses are discovered.
