I downloaded Puppy Unleashed onto Windows XP to transfer over to Puppy Unleashed which I have on a seperate standalone (no network/Internet) computer. When I ran McAfee, it detected the "EICAR Test File" in the Puppy Unleashed file. What is this?

this is a test file to test that your virus software checker is working to minimum standards - I think it is part of f-prot in Puppy? Not sure exactly - but nothing to worry about - do a google for more info

Very Happy

Lobster is correct. Don't worry about it. F-prot uses it as a test file.
