Hello!

Can anyone refresh my memory as to how to remove VProtect from Uniboot? I've searched and searched and can't find any RMEnsure VProtect's (i bet i've missed one), and I've removed it from the modules directory but it insists on loading on every startup and insists on telling me everything has a virus (including Uniboot).

!!!

(aside from Utils/BootRun). I hadn't checked there. Fixed!

IME if VProtect is telling you that you have a virus, you have a virus....

I was worried at first but *everything* I clicked on had a Virus - even uniboot that I'd just downloaded from the RISC OS FTP site!

That's normal for some viruses with RISC OS. They can replicate from folder to folder. It only takes one infected folder to be read from floppy for it to infect everything you click on thereafter to get infected.

Download VZap and Scanmod from riscos.org and scan your machine thoroughly.
