Simple Antivirus Scanner - Scans entire folder (drive) and subfolders for files with specific extension (optional), then gets file MD5 hash, Size in bytes and compares the two values with values from database, in case of match displays "Infected: ... etc ...". It contains a database maker; the database contains a fake virus for test purposes that is also available in this source code (a console app which displays a text: "This is a fake virus"). This is the most basic Antivirus engine. The scanning style is very old; antique some may say but there are still antiviruses on the market now that use the same style. You can optionally add HEX, BIN check, etc... to be shure that no false-pozitives appear when scanning. You need TBackGroundWorker component from DelphiArea.

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. After downloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.

Virus note: All files are scanned once-a-day by for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them.


1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
