I have an old floppy I would like to use on my new computer. My old one had viruses on it till it died. I have files on this old floppy I would like to see. How do you scan it to see if there is a virus on it before I open the files on it? Thanks.

You should be able to right click on it in My Computer and choose "scan for viruses" or something similar. It really depends on your antivirus software.

If that doesn't work your AV software (and Malwarebytres) should have a place where you can tell it to scan the disk.
