mks_vir was first created in 1987 in response to the plague of multiplying computer viruses.
mks_vir package offered today is a modern antivirus software application, based on the most recent technologies.
The package is designed to work under all the current operating systems of the Windows family.
The package consists of several main modules. Their combined operation protects the computer against the intrusion of harmful programs.
Antivirus monitor, deeply embedded in the core of the Windows system, controls in the real time all the file operations. For that reason it is able to stop the activation of a virus in course of executing operations on the hard disk, floppy disk, CD/DVD or other carriers.
The monitor, at the activation, checks whether in the computer memory there is a virus installed. If this is the case, the virus is removed.
Disk and file scanner is a traditional element of antivirus software. During one quick run it can scan many physical and network drives. It detects viruses, Trojan horses and Internet worms.
Moreover, beside the standard scanner operating in the Windows environment, mks_vir package contains also a 32-bit DOS scanner (fully compatible with the Windows version).
This scanner allows to delete viruses from files used by the Windows system, and also to delete viruses located in the boot sector and the partition table of the hard drive.
Under special circumstances, it is possible to disinfect the computer after starting it from the installation CD or from the start-up floppy disk of mks_vir package.
mks_update program allows to minimise the costs of Internet connections thanks to the mechanism of repository.
In small networks only one workstation has to connect to the Internet in order to download the update elements. Other stations update the program through the local network from that station.
