It's been suggested before that Java isn't the ideal language for coding an AntiVirus, because you want a language that is designed to interact with the OS.

I would suggest taking a look at Open Source projects available on Source Forge, & seeing how they work. Either use the code for a base, or join the project. Either way, you are learning how to code the AntiVirus :)
