    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.

    Antivirus Sample Application

    Microsoft Antivirus API

    Security Pilot Anti-Virus Devloping

    Super Av Anti Virus
    Super Av AntiVirus is an open source anti virus with full source code

    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.
