    If you want to make an antivirus program, with little knowledge on how to do so, download a project from sourceforge, read the source code, & get evolved with the project. Machine level language are preffered to write antivirus - Generally VC++ Language is good choice.

    Aren't their enough to chose from?

    Anyway, learn a software development language, I recommend C++. There are many components to an anti-virus, such as the engine, detection (signature vs heuristic), self defense, firewall, etc.

    Start first with simple applications. These anti-virus companies invest hundreds of thousands of dollars into the development and maintaining of their products, hiring hundreds of programmers to do different tasks.

      mother fucker..what the hell r u..r u gay ?? why u want to meet us??

    • Jeff Fabish

      Uh-rude. That is contradictory, actually. I can't be both a "mother fucker" AND gay, as if I were gay I wouldn't then fuck mothers (who are women).  

      It was actually a joke at how long it will take to master such a language.
