EKREM DENIZ'S ANTI-VIRUS
PROGRAM VERSION 2.3
First Impression A virus checker in QB? What a stupid idea. :P Just kidding. I'll check it out...
What It's Like This is a little virus checker that checks your programs for viruses! I'm not sure how it works or what it does, but I do know that it takes a long time and that I don't understand it. Run it. It takes about 800 minutes to check the files on my 2 gig hard drive. I never waited for it to finish, though... It has a lot of error messages and stuff in it too. Try it if you're kinda...well...bored...
Other things you should know This is the first QB virus checker that I have seen. That's all I can think of...

The rating
Graphics/Menu This has a windows like menuing system. It also has the percentage bar that is seen in a ton of windows programs. It has a nice colored layout for you to watch for 800 minutes if you decide to wait that long. It's not that bad, but I'd like to see some nice graphics. :)
***
Sound No sound.
N/A
Control and User Input It's inkey$ and input stuff. If they didn't work good, why would Micro$oft put those commands in QB? It works fine. Don't argue with me.
****
Documentation This is simple - load and press F5. There's also a .doc read me that is a bit weird, but explains most of what you need to know... The thing that brings this down a bit is that there are adds all over the place for this guy's programs. :P I don't like ads.
***
Overall Impression This is not practical at all. Windows '95/'98/NT, which just about all QBASIC users has comes with a faster and better virus checker. I don't understand the code, and it's slow. It was cool to find a QB virus checker, though! The code is not layed out that well, and is hard to follow. It's cool, though.
