Welcome to another new viruskiller on the AMIGA. This virus-killer was programmed to help you to get rid of all the viruses hanging around. VirusWorkshop handles a big number of trojan horses, which try change the AmiExpress mailbox programm and it is ideal for users, who just want to heck their software in a very secure way for viruses and diskerrors.
VirusWorkshop is another try to make a viruskiller for a special usergroup. I think it is good to support Kickstart 1.x but the new features should be supported. VirusWorkshop needs at least 1 MB of memory to work properly.

System Requirements:
  • All Amiga's with OS2.04 or higher
  • Adtools.library
  • FileID.library
  • DMS packer (if you use DMS check)
  • OWS packer (if you use OWS check)
  • Reqtools.library
  • Xfdmaster.library

  • Sektor Check
  • File/Link/Trojan Check
  • Heuristic Scanner
  • Locale Support
  • The Memory Check Function
  • Bootblock to File Function
  • AutoRamKill
  • Read, Write, Show physical cylinder 0
  • The LHA archiv checkroutine
  • Integrity-Checker

This programm was made possible based on the work of many people, who send me bugreports, infected files, money, talked to me and gave me new motivation to continue the work on this. I want to thank you ALL. I cannot mention all your names here, but I think on you.

Heuristics Scanner:
What does heuristic exactly mean ?. Heuristic is a word, which is nowadays on the PC very popular and every better viruskiller offers you this possibility. Due to my contacts to some PC antivirus people and to the Virus Test Center in Hamburg, I came to the conclusion to implent such a scanner on AMIGA. Heuristic scanners search for dangerous filestructures and commands and give the user a warning. Such filestructures can e.g. appear in a lot of software.
This is just an additional tool for freaky users. It offers you the possibility to search for dangerous structures and stuff like that. It can cause a lot of FALSE positives, but it`s (as said) a tool for the more advanced users.
