  • Antivirus and the Registry

    Does anyone know the mechanisim by which a program is installed as an antivirus program in WinXP? I would like to programmaticaly tell windows that a given program is a virus scanner but I'm not sure how to go about it.
    Any help would be appreciated.

    I'm not sure if I understand what you're asking for.

    I understand it that you are searching for a way to integrate your program with the Windows security API so that Windows (for example the Windows Security Center) does recognize your app as an installed AV software.

    Perhaps this gives you a start:
