If you want to create viruses, which I don't condone, you should learn how to program computers. Using a cookie-cutter virus building program will only cause problems for you, and not really anyone else, because any AntiVirus software available will stop any such virus easily. Again, making computer viruses is really not cool.

Quite an immoral question if we might say so.

Now I've stopped laughing, here's a sensible answer . . . Your anti-virus program doesn't just look for known viruses, it will analyse a file and look for 'virus-like behaviour' which may be the ability of a program to change it's form, or create copies of itself, or attach itself to other files. This is called 'heuristic scanning'. Because your virus creating program will have code to do this, your anti-virus scanner has done its job and flagged it.

That comes up as an ID-10t error in the anti-virus log, right?
