Most good viruses are well hidden with in other programs but what your trying to get rid of is malware. And how do I know because iv got some of those before and now there gone :) .

The first step to a anti-ANYTHING is a database. And a mechinism of scanning files.

The database would have to include a list of all the known malware/viruses, or whatever you want to remove. And would have to be updated all the time...

You might be able to find something like that

Sorry internet was down I accidently unplugged it from the telephone line and didnt realise all day ;( .

But you should start with the database. I think the .mdb file is a database file? And if you can harness this and with some kind of version checker for e.g: where you compare 1 .txt text with one downloaded from a server. And if its the same do nothing if its not then it will download both files and overwrite the older ones.

Iv never done searching in VB.net I have no idea why I havent. But That infomation that I gave you above shall help you.
