of The Norton AntiVirus.

^hVirus Clinic Summary^h
^hVirus Intercept Summary^h
Virus Clinic is the part of The Norton AntiVirus that scans
files for viruses. If a virus is found, Virus Clinic then gives
you the option of repairing the file (if the file is repairable)
or deleting the file. You may scan complete disks, specific
directories, or individual files.

A virus is known to The Norton AntiVirus by having an entry in
the virus definition file that is maintained by Virus Clinic.
Virus definitions are provided by Symantec. See Appendix A,
"Updating Virus Definitions" of The Norton AntiVirus User's
Manual for more information.

To check for unknown viruses, The Norton AntiVirus first must
inoculate a file. Then, whenever that file is accessed, the
file is checked against the stored inoculation data, and if the
file has changed, you are alerted to the fact that the file has
changed and that there is a possibility of an unknown virus.

Virus Clinic also provides commands to configure both Virus
Clinic and Virus Intercept and to manage the list of virus
definitions in Virus Clinic.
Virus Intercept is the component of The Norton AntiVirus that
constantly monitors your system for viruses. Virus Intercept
is loaded into memory when you boot your computer. Whenever
you copy a file, copy a disk, or start an application, Virus
Intercept first checks the file(s) for any virus defined in
the virus definition list.

If an infected file is found, an alert is sounded and the
action is stopped. At this point, you would start up Virus
Clinic and scan for the infected file. Once Virus Clinic has
identified the infected file, you can then repair (or delete)
the file. See Repairing versus Deleting Infected Files for
more information.

Another feature of Virus Intercept is the ability to
"inoculate" application files. With this feature enabled, the
first time you run an application program, Virus Intercept
calculates inoculation data for that application and stores it
in the inoculation file. Whenever you run that application
again, Virus Intercept checks the inoculation data to verify
that the application's code has not changed. If the code has
changed, there is a possibility of an unknown virus. In this
case, Virus Intercept alerts you to the change and gives you
the option to reinoculate the file Use this option only if
the code changes are valid.
( Repair Actions provide procedures for recovering from specific
virus types.

^hHard Disk Partition Table Virus^h
^hHard Disk Boot Sector Virus^h
^hFloppy Disk Boot Sector Virus^h
^hRemoving a Virus from Memory^h
^hRepairing Versus Deleting Infected Files^h
A virus of this type is repairable by The Norton AntiVirus only
if the original partition table information was copied by the
virus to a known location. For all other cases, the partition
table must be repaired manually. A partition table virus can be
removed manually in one of three ways:

1. With a Rescue Disk
^bNote:^b a Rescue Disk must have been created previously.
a. Turn off the computer.
b. Insert an uninfected, write protected DOS floppy disk in
ÿ drive A and turn on the computer.

ÿ ^bImportant:^b the DOS version on the floppy must be
ÿ EXACTLY the same version as on the hard disk.

c. Insert a write protected copy of the program disk for the
ÿ The Norton AntiVirus.
d. Type RESCUE and press Enter.
e. Choose RESTORE RESCUE DISKETTE from the list that appears.
f. Insert your rescue disk in the appropriate floppy drive.
ÿ Follow the prompts and instructions to restore the
ÿ partition table from your rescue disk.

2. With Norton Utilities (4.5 Advanced or later),
^bCAUTION:^b This procedure requires a high degree of familiarity
with the Norton Utilities. Call the Technical Support Department
for help if there is any doubt about attempting this procedure.
Incorrect operation may result in loss of data!
a. Turn off the computer.
b. Insert an uninfected, write protected DOS floppy disk in
ÿ drive A and turn on the computer.

ÿ ^bImportant:^b the DOS version on the floppy must be
ÿ EXACTLY the same version as on the hard disk.

c. Using the disk editor, check through track 0 to see if a
ÿ valid partition table was copied to another location. If
ÿ so, copy that sector back to Cylinder 0, Side 0, Sector 1.
ÿ If no copy of the original partition table is found, fill
ÿ the entire partition table sector with zeros, escape to
ÿ DOS, and run "NDD C: /REBUILD" to recreate the Master Boot
ÿ Program and partition table.

3. Without Norton Utilities,
a. Turn off the computer.
b. Insert an uninfected, write protected DOS floppy disk in
ÿ drive A and turn on the computer.

ÿ ^bImportant:^b the DOS version on the floppy must be
ÿ EXACTLY the same version as on the hard disk.

c. Backup all data and then destructively low-level format
ÿ the disk.

ÿ ^bNote:^b in some cases this may be done only by the
ÿ manufacturer.

d. Partition the drive using the DOS FDISK command.
e. Format the drive using the DOS FORMAT command.
f. Restore the backed up data.
To repair a hard disk boot sector virus:

1. With a Rescue Disk

ÿ ^bNote:^b a Rescue Disk must have been created previously.

a. Turn off the computer.
b. Insert an uninfected, write protected DOS floppy disk in
ÿ drive A and turn on the computer.

ÿ ^bImportant:^b the DOS version on the floppy must be
ÿ EXACTLY the same version as on the hard disk.

c. Insert a write protected copy of the program disk for the
ÿ The Norton AntiVirus.
d. Type RESCUE and press Enter.
e. Choose RESTORE RESCUE DISKETTE from the list that appears.
f. Insert your rescue disk in the appropriate floppy drive.
ÿ Follow the prompts and instructions to restore the
ÿ boot sector information from your rescue disk.

2. Without a Rescue Disk.
a. Turn off the computer.
b. Insert an uninfected, write protected DOS floppy disk in
ÿ drive A and turn on the computer.

ÿ ^bImportant:^b the DOS version on the floppy must be
ÿ EXACTLY the same version as on the hard disk.

c. Use the DOS SYS command to rebuild the boot sector. At the
ÿ A> prompt, type:

ÿ C:[path]SYS C:

ÿ where [path] is the directory path to where the DOS files
ÿ are stored on the hard disk.
To repair a floppy disk boot sector virus:

1. Ensure that your computer is uninfected.
2. Copy the files on the infected floppy disk to another disk
ÿ or to the hard drive.

ÿ ^bImportant:^b Do not use the DOS DISKCOPY command.

3. Reformat the floppy disk. Use the /s option if the disk is
ÿ to be bootable.
4. Copy the files back onto the reformatted disk.
To remove a virus from memory:

1. Turn off the computer.
2. Insert an uninfected, write protected DOS floppy disk in
ÿ drive A and turn on the computer.

ÿ ^bImportant:^b the DOS version on the floppy must be exactly
ÿ the same version as on the hard disk.

3. Insert a write protected copy of the program disk for
ÿ The Norton AntiVirus
4. Scan the hard disk using The Norton AntiVirus on the floppy
ÿ drive to find any files that may have been infected by the
ÿ virus. If any infected files are found, either repair or
ÿ delete them. Once you're sure your system is clean,
ÿ reboot the system in the usual way.
An infected file may be repaired only if a virus has not
permanently overwritten any information in that file. If a file
is repairable, in most cases it can be repaired without damage
to the original contents of the file. If a repaired file does
not operate properly, reload the file from a known good master
file.

Note: any "repaired" file should be rescanned prior to use.

If a file cannot be repaired, it should be deleted and a new
copy loaded from a known good master file.
