Yes Online scanners will check for viruses and they can not delete that's downside of them .

That's right Venkat, bu it is useful when your anti-virus program failed to detect a particualr virus and a number of specific virus removal tools are freely available for download from most of the security software developers you can use any of them.

Knowing whether or not your machine has a virus is immensely useful information. If the results are negative, then you are in the clear. If they are positive, then you know you have to find the fix.

with all due respect jk, venkat, I use eset for my cusomers more than any and it WILL remove any infections found, as did bitdefender tho now they only seem to have the 'quick scan' available .. another alternative is to download the free boot cd's that most of the above have available, again they remove infections and have the added bonus of doing outside a windows environment. One other item I find really useful is the Vipre resuce.. again its downloadable and updates everyday.
