Free Online Virus and Malware Scan

Individual files can be scanned on demand and Virustotal uses multiple antivirus engines to test the file. The file is tested with products form F-Secure, Grisoft, McAfee, Symantec among others.

Virustotal is a service that analyzes suspicious files and facilitates the quick detection of viruses, worms, trojans, and all kinds of malware detected by antivirus engines.

Specs:

  • Free, independent service
  • Use of multiple antivirus engines
  • Real-time automatic updates of virus signatures
  • Detailed results from each antivirus engine
  • Real time global statistics

What antivirus product do you use and what are the pros and cons? I am beta testing Norton 360 from Symantec on one of my machines and so far it works pretty good.
