Online Scanners

On this page is a list of sites where you can scan your machine for various type of malwares, trojans, viruses and worms. Some are just single file checking services, an excellent resource if your unsure about a file on your machine.


AV Style scanners

   Trend Micro

Go here to double check your current AV protection app. Very popular. I use it monthly, as a backup scan with my Norton AV.

 

   Panda ActiveScan

   Symantec/Norton scan

Free scan from the makers of Norton products. Very reliable, and up to date.


Malware Scanners\File Checkers

   Joti Online file scanner

This site offers a free scan of single files. Its a great little site we use alot in malware situations.
By uploading files to this online service you agree that your files will be stored locally for personal virus collection interests.

 

   Kaspersky File Checker

If you discover a suspicious file on your machine, or suspect that a program you downloaded from the Internet might be malicious, you can check the files here.

Indicate the file to be checked; it will automatically be uploaded from your computer to a dedicated server, where it will be scanned using Kaspersky Anti-Virus.

Only one file of up to 1 MB can be checked at any one time.

 

   Pest Patrol

Free malware scan here, tho, does produce a fair amount of 'false/positives', be sure and double check everything it finds, before you remove it. A bit more for advanced users.

 

Right-Click to save image   Spyware-Guide Online ActiveX Scan

Scans your computer for known malware AcitveX installs. Data base limited.
 

   Norman Sandbox 

Another excellent online file scanner, always current and accurate.

  Online Virus Scanner 

If you discover a suspicious file on your machine, or suspect that a program you downloaded from the internet might be malicious you can scan it here. Enter the file name to be checked in the box below and it will automatically be uploaded from your computer to a dedicated server where it will be scanned using FortiClient Anti-Virus. Updates every three hours are performed to ensure that even the newest viruses can be detected. Only one file of up to 1 MB can be checked at any one time.
