1. What\'s new for VirusScan95!

2. What\'s new for VShield 95!
McAfee has re-vitalized the classic VShield product for an entirely new generation of Windows products. McAfee\'s chief architect stated when asked, "We overhauled the entire product by dropping in a 32-bit engine, and a series of VXD modules then, gave the interface a completely new look & feel. Customers who are familiar with the older product will be completely amazed at the improvements and features we have added. New users will really enjoy how VShield has been seamlessly blended into the workings of Windows95."

Unlike its predecessor, VShield no longer relies on a DOS TSR; everything is done directly in the Windows95 environment. "We assembled customers\' feedback and attempted to develop a product which, we believe the customer really wants. In the marketplace, I believe McAfee will be the first to develop an on-access product which is completely independent of MS-DOS."

Here\'s what they did:
On Access scanning of floppy diskettes.
UNC aware.
Long file and directory name support.
Netware and MS-Network awareness.
Log file support with real-time logging.
Exclusions table.
Detection rate equivalent to existing products.
