Hi Jack aka Bonzo. I havn't got F-prot but looking on their site you should
simply be able to run f-prot to scan all files. You will need to open a
console (CLI) and as I have to do using clam-av av scanner, will probably
have to run it as root. Just type su on the CLI, then your root password,
then f-prot, and it should scan all your files. Personally since I got rid of
Windoze, I've lost my paranoia to be constantly scanning for this and that.
I'm not taking it lightly, as there are viruses, etc, that can effect linux.
Personally, having a good, secure, firewall, and a good root password, should
protect you from most unexpected arrivals. Back up the data in you're /home
directory regularly to, preferably another hardrive, and better still to a
harddrive on another machine. If you want any advice on firewall GUI's feel
free to post back off list if you want to. All the best. Nigel.
