Version 3.7.1 fixes an error which could sometimes cause crashes when scanning very rare kinds of files while pass the new "more lenient" check for damaged resource forks which was introduced in 3.7.

3.7 Release Notes (July 7, 1997)

Version 3.7 detects a minor variation of the MBDF B virus which was properly detected by the 3.6 INIT but not by the 3.6 application.

The Disinfectant manual now discusses the Microsoft macro virus problem. The introductory text displayed in Disinfectant's main window warns that Disinfectant does not recognize the macro viruses and refers the user to the manual for more details.

The "All Disks" command in the "Scan" menu has been changed to "All Local Disks". This command now only scans local disks, not network AppleShare servers.

The "All Disks" command in the "Disinfect" menu has been changed to "All Local Unlocked Disks". This command now only disinfects local unlocked disks, not network AppleShare servers or locked disks like CD-ROMs or locked floppies.

If you want to scan or disinfect servers, scan or disinfect them individually, or use the "Some Disks" commands in the "Scan" and "Disinfect" menus.
