IIRC it wont even pick up Form A which wasn't even new when MSAV was first

BTW I wont go into detail but there haave been long discussions about the
plural of virus on alt.comp.virus and it seems to come down to the consensus
that those who have knowledge of the etymology of the word (and who are
generally in the anti virus camp) insist that it is viruses whereas those who
think that viruses are 'cool' (and those who write them) insist that it should
be viri or the impossible virii.
