VirusChecker II is a program that can be used on any Amiga that is running Workbench 2.04 or better. VirusChecker II is designed to hunt out Amiga viruses and kill them dead. It also scans memory on startup and checks all suspect vectors. It also checks certain memory locations every 2 seconds for infection. It is also possible to use Virus Checker online with a BBS to check incoming archives IMMEDIATELY. This can be done by using the Rexx port of Virus Checker II in combination withthe extraction tool (ArcExtract) which in combination with the Archive Options feature can handle ANY archiver you desire.


VirusChecker II is able to detect older (and some newer) viruses through the use of the xvs library. If you want to benefit from this new feature then you need to fire up VCPrefs and turn the usage of the xvs library on. By default xvs is turned ON, BUT! if you are upgrading VirusChecker II you are likely to have a config already. This means that Xvs is per default turned OFF. If you haven`t saved the config of VirusChecker II before, xvs is turned ON.

VirusChecker II will pick up all the files that it requires from at least 2 places. It will first try PROGDIR: then the alternative place. VirusChecker II will save any of the files it needs to back from where it read it from.

FREE key-file for Virus Checker II, Yes, you read it right. Virus Checker II is now free. Thanks to all you out there who supported me in the past and to who supported John Veldthuis. This is an official keyfile, release by me (Alex van Niel). If you don't trust this or suspect it is fake, then either contact Jan Andersen (VHT-DK) or me through e-mail.

I feel that the time has come to make VirusCheckerII free and available for every Amiga userin the world. Virus protection should be free, which it always has, but I feel that since other killers offer everything free as well, I feel VirusCheckerII should be completely free as well. So hereby, enjoy it and to all users that paid in the past, don't feel cheated because your contributions made it possible for me to continue, update my system buy new developing software and also you were a sign Virus Checker II was being used. You are to be thanked for your loyalty which I here by do: Thanks! :)
