    BitDefender Online Scanner
    Easy to use. High detection rate.

    eTrust Antivirus Web Scanner
    Easy to use. High detection rate.

    F-Secure Online Virus Scanner
    Easy to use. High detection rate.

    Kaspersky Online Scanner
    High detection rate. Cannot disinfect. Slow scanning.

    McAfee Freescan
    Easy to use. High detection rate. Cannot disinfect.

    Panda ActiveScan
    Very easy to use. High detection rate. Free Registration Required for disinfect .

    Symantec Security Check
    Easy to use. High detection rate.

    Trend Micro Housecall
    Easy to use. High detection rate.


    Try a couple of these.They don't install so the virus shouldn't detect them.
    You will have to use IE since they require active X.
    Also disable system restore before scanning because things can hide in there.

    use norton if you really do have a virus; it can find anything although it takes up an assload of system resources

    as i earlier said u about NOD 32. Now u realized, how good it is. Use KIS 2009 and NIS 2008. Norton Internet Security 2008 Takes less memory. But atleast u should hv 1 gb ram. remaining all are crap. I installed both KIS and NIS. and I keep active NIS only. Whenever I wanted to scan a file then i activate KIS

    I would just " Nuke " your computer ( Format and reinstall ) you'll never get it back how you want it , probably faster too . You may get rid of a few virus but its probably infested with Trojans and Root kits that those links won't find .Hyjackthis may help too .




    Not a knock on IdolEyes post as I think it's worthy of a Sticky but some of those programs give alot of " False positives " . You get rid of one and it takes your programs out .

    If you don't what to nuke then at least D/L a free Trojan scanner such as Trojan Killer or Trojan Remover . Not trying to be a know it all but been there , done that got the t shirt .

    Here's a site I use for suspicious files .: http://virusscan.jotti.org/

    Hyjackthis : http://www.merijn.org/programs.php

    Links for Trojan Programs :

    http://www.softpedia.com/get/Antivir...-Remover.shtml

    Oh bye the bye , I use Eset .

    No offense taken peat moss some of those could indeed give you false positives.
    The only one I would really say is going to give you problems though is CA.I have great faith in KAV,Eset and Symantec.
    I like the idea of the occasional reinstall but even that isn't a guarantee.If you are backing up files there is always the risk saving the one with the malware in it.
