Virus Scan Alerts

Has anyone else gotten a virus scan alerts on ZEsarUX-win-5.0-no-pthreads.zip or Eightyone V.1.7.zip in scanning with Antivirus?

I am using AVAST 8.0.

I searched what I thought were relevant terms and have found nothing.

Thanks in advance.

Re: Looking foir a TS1500

I have bought two. And since there are so few of them they are more expensive. I think that the fact that they are the "better" TS-1000 design points to the reason they are more valuable. In my opinion , this means that if Timex had come out with these first, they would have caught on and possibly c...

Re: How bad was the wobble on the zx81

My opinion, having owned one in 1982, was that: If Timex had introduced only the Timex Sinclair 1500 first which had a "workable" keyboard, and 16K memory built onto board, it may have fared far better. People were so disappointed because of crashes and lack of keyboard that there was no word of mou...

Re: "Mageco" disk controler. [infos, Docs wanted]

Some clues...
