Program name: Bootminder
Program URL:
Program description: A boot virus is a virus that is transmitted during computer startup. The most common way of getting infected is to leave your floppy in your computer during shutdown. If that floppy is infected with a boot-virus, your computer's harddisk will very probably be infected the next time you start your computer.
Bootminder will warn you if a floppy is in your A: drive when you are closing down Windows. If you then take out the disk from that drive, the next time you start your computer, it will not boot from that floppy. Conclusion: a reduced chance of a boot-virus infection!
