possibly a half stupid idea but run in a virtual machine a really old version of operating system.
something like windows 95.
reason being most viruses are coded for newer operating systems.
hence the older is will not support these functions.
I one did try Ubuntu with wine installed and ran up over 20gb of different viruses.
a funny evening that was.
no virus could successfully run at all.
we even had a packet analyser running sniffing what was coming out from the infected Ubuntu PC.
at the end of the day it was a massive nonevent.
I just could not get a windows virus to run properly on an Ubuntu PC
top marks to Linux.
