How do I build an entire application?
is a bit more than one can reasonably expect from single thread. Don't you think? Multi-million dollar companies buy professionally built anti-virus applications rather than have their in-house team build one from scratch for a reason: Because it takes an entire company of dedicated professionals to do it and keep up on new viruses. It is no small task.

We get asked this question a lot, for multiple languages.

It's far to complex for one person to write an effective antivirus. Entire companies are based around the technologies employing teams of programmers & beta testers. It isn't as simple as reading a file & determining if the file is a virus. One would need the understanding of how computers work at an Operating System & Networking level, possibly even file systems (such as Fat32/NTFS) in order to begin to code a program to automatically perform the detection.

It is possible, but not without the human understanding of trying to perform it. Since you don't indicate one way or the other that you have (or don't have) this knowledge, it's to be assumed that you don't. & the teaching of that would be beyond the scope of any programming language.

If you truly wish to learn about antivirus technologies, you should checkout the project ClamWin, as it's both free & open source.
