If Microsoft Anti-Virus for Windows detects the FORMS virus, the following
generic message is displayed:
The virus infecting this disk has not been analyzed by Central Point
Software. As a result, the virus cannot be removed. See your "MS-DOS 6
User's Guide" for information about updating Microsoft Anti-Virus so you
can detect and remove the latest viruses.
Microsoft Anti-Virus for Windows cannot clean the FORMS virus but the
MS-DOS-based version of Microsoft Anti-Virus (MSAV.EXE) can.
If you do not have the MS-DOS-based version of Microsoft Anti-Virus
installed, run SETUP /E to install the optional utilities. For more
information on SETUP /E, see page 4 of the "MS-DOS 6 User's Guide."
