Virus Buster Lite for Windows 4.84.15
Okay, so Leprechaun Software’s Virus Buster Lite doesn’t have a direct connection to our St. Patrick’s Day theme, BUT…you’re going to need it if you’re a frequent downloader of shareware. Most shareware is perfectly safe, but virus protection is essential for the small percentage that isn’t safe. This package of virus detection tools includes Doc Check, which is Leprechaun’s latest cure for the Word Macro virus, along with new signatures for the Word Macro/Show Off virus. Also included is Vcheck, which will detect the new Euthanasia (Krshna) virus. You can keep pace with the latest little gremlins in the computer world with Leprechaun’s virus database.
