Hi Pratik Soni welcome to Javaranch
Double clicking the JAR displayed the error main class not found.
The command executed properly.

The UI is nice and looks like you use the file names to identify viruses.
Anyways started experimenting it.

Hello Amit nice to here form you.
Install JRE 1.6 in your system for your first problem.
And yes you identified the processing it matches the file name for virus identification. Actually i also need to publish its documentation so that the functionality is more clarified.
By the way i enhanced antivirus and sooner i am giving the link for it too.
Sorry for late replying.

Does it check for virus signatures?

Yes the documentation will make things more clear.
