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."
