|Introduction to the Antivirus API||
The Antivirus API enables software vendors to develop applications that scan Office 2000 documents before opening them. The API also supports scanning Internet Explorer 5 code downloads, such as Microsoft ActiveX Controls or installs. However, be aware that the Windows Internet Explorer scanning support applies only to automatic code downloads and not to file downloads or HTML documents. The primary purpose of this API is to give an independent software vendor (ISV) the ability to design and implement scanning software that can be used by all applications.
