Agax is an antivirus application. It scans your disks and files for viruses. It also contains Defender, which is an antivirus extension. Both of these use Additives to discover and (in the case of Agax) repair infected files. Additives are stored in the folder 'Additives' in the same folder as Agax. What's new in Agax 1.3.2:
- The Defender Log file, which records the actions of Defender and lives in the System Folder, is now limited in size. Whenever it wants to grow over 32KB, it is reduced to 24KB. This means it can always be opened with SimpleText.
- Now checks for the presence of Drag and Drop interfaces before using them. This change reinstates Agax as compatible with System 7 on 68000 processors.
- Better file error reporting. Instead of each additive complaining that it can't check a file if the fork it wanted to check couldn't be opened, Agax now checks this itself and emits a general error message for the file when it occurs. This should clear up a lot of false alarms that occurred when a resource fork was corrupted, leading to the SevenDust additive saying that the file 'may be infected with SevenDust, but no diagnosis could be made (probably because an error occurred opening it)'. · When an examine or repair run finishes, the completion message now indicates the number of files examined.
- Adding a warning in the Preferences dialog box when the 'Examine resource forks when opened' checkbox is toggled on.
- Added debugging output throughout the startup process. This can be turned on by holding down shift when Agax launches. An 'Agax Debug Log' file will then be generated on the desktop. It is intended to debug problems where Agax crashes on startup, as it used to on old systems.
