Laptop to Laptop file Transfer and Viruses (Gulp!)

  [DELETED] 20:30 26 Aug 2003

I have a friend (my boss actually!!) who owns a laptop which is infected with the WM Blaster Virus. He has aksed if i could help him be rid of it by borrowing some anit virus software.
I have a laptop which is (touch wood)virus free. I was thinking of transferring my anti virus software for him on to his via file transfer USB cable. Can this be done? Also if i download a patch to be rid of the Blaster virus can i also transfer this to his laptop?

Could you download AV, burn to CDrom and load on his machine from that ?
click here for avast4

Remembering that if it's a company machine, he really should pay for AV software, it's only free for non profit home users.

You can download the fix and the patch, put them both on two floppies and bang them on the laptop

In other words click here and download fixhaptime.exe to desktop the drop in on a floppy, then click here and download the M$ update to floppy aswell.
