ESET Online Scanner: Scan and Remove Known and Unknown Malware

Online free anti virus scanners have been around for a while, and of course, they are no match for standalone antivirus apps, but can be useful in some tough situations. For example, if you find your computer acting a little strange, or if the existing software has been disabled by malware, you can utilize an online virus scanner to remove threat.

Recently I have come across a strange situation on my PC and I decided to try ESET’s free online antivirus scanner. It completed its job brilliantly. Though little slow on scanning, it took back my PC to its normal state.

The ESET Online Scanner uses the most current virus signatures and heuristic detection algorithms for detecting both known and unknown forms of malware. It runs in major browsers such as IE, Firefox, etc.

Just remember that these online antivirus scanners are no match for standalone scanner, but you can use it frequently to scan your PC to keep all types of viruses at bay.
