Following yesterdays post about antivirus applications to download for free, here is another post about antivirus tool but this time you don’t need to worry about downloading them they will scan your machine online.

BitDefender QuickScan

Panda ActiveScan

TrendMicro Housecall

F-Secure Online Scanner




I have tried each one of these with a virtual machine and infected it myself and everyone picked up the virus and removed it. The best one I feel was the Trend Micro product as it gave me the most ease of use and was very quick.

If you know of any more that should be on this list feel free to add them in the comments section below.
