  • making an antivirus software is not such a simple task. you'll need to learn about how viruses act, you'll need to learn more then one programming language (you'll probably have to learn assambler, C, C++), you'll need to learn about operating systems, multithreaded programming, communication and security, you'll need a team to study viruses, see how they act and their signature to be able to identify and stop them. that's why the antiviruses are made by teams and not by a single human.

    conclusion: if you are not a guru in more than one fild, you'll not be able to construct an antivirus software. and a guru will not ask such a general question on a forum.

  • can you tell me that is it possible that a spyware or pornware remains in our harddisk still when we format the window  .?
    one thing more if it is possible but not for a spyware or any other kind of virus can remain in harddisk even we format the windows

  • the question was how you can make an antivirus. now you ask an usability question, and this is a programming forum, so you are offtopic.
