    If I am handing you a closed bag, you have to accept it, and then open it to see what's inside.

    In other words, your application has to open the message/file to know whether it is a virus or anything. Without opening and checking what's in it, it is not possible to know what it contains.

    Thank you for your comment Mr.petrib
    I understand that but like any antivirus you have to download the file first and then you can check it,that is what I want to do after I receive message using bluetooth and before opening it I want to check wether it has a virus or not
    my question now is that possible using PYS60 or Should I use another language??
    thank you again

    For an anti-virus application for Symbian/S60 based phones, it is best to use Symbian C++.

    Thank you Mr.petrib for your advice . Because am not so good in python,and I am new to it, but when I was thinking about this software I felt that it is not prefered to use python but I was not sure, so I asked you experts
    thanks
