Ran it and it installed successfully but crashes imeadiately on running Tried another installation and the same thing Unfortunately it removes 7.1 from the Virex folder and empties the trash in the process. Make sure you have a 7.1 dmg around or move a copy of 7.1 from your Virex folder or of course a current backup When reinstalld 7.1 it said the .dat files were from last June. I installed the Jan 29 2003 update and all is back in order
Your mileage may vary
The eUpdate worked for me after installation. It took a while to download and install the updated dedf files but I assume that the server is somewhat overloaded. This brings Virex up to the auto-update simplicity of NAV.
I have found Virex EXTREMLY slow, i have left it for hours doing a full check on my HD and I come back and it is not even half way complete, does anybody else have this problem?
I am reformatting my drive as soon as my WD 120GB drive (8mb) and ata/133 card arrive, so that may fix it, any other suggestions?

The chances that you actually have any viri on your HD are slim (only reasonable fear of the new and unknown prevents me from saying "none"); I would run it once (go to bed, whatever) and leave it at that.
Have it check downloads, shareware disks, disks from other users, and eMail. You shouldn't have to scan your HD regularly, unless a Mac virus alert comes up (last one was about 5 years ago, when everybody was running the latest OS, System 7.5.5. To defeat that, a setting in QuickTime was all you needed to check).
You are basically doing it as a courtesy to your PC using eMail contacts.
If you are using MS Office apps and Outlook/Entorage, you need to watch for macro's; if you use another app for eMail (don't forget to remove the MS mail app from your drive) you don't have to worry much about that either, except from files from other users via removeable disks.
