No virus problem with the new Hamview (2.10) here. I have Win98, with
Bios checking for sensitive disk writes. Also running Norton
SystemWorks 1.0 anti-virus. Norton declared the zip file clean.
Unzipped, then ran Hamview twice, then scanned for viruses with Norton,
none found. Seems OK.
The only problem I have is exiting from Hamview; I have to
control-alt-delete and end the task. No problems from that either...
