As you surf the vast diversified Internet, install and deinstall a wide variety of programs and applications, you also run risk of accepting viruses and trojans. Viruses are harmful to your system. Trojans play havoc on confidential data and send them back to some remote site to the Trojan writer.

Fortunately, there are two quick and easy Virus Scanners that you can make use of, to scan your system and clean it from Viruses and Trojans. This is for quick and easy check. It is any recommended to have a fullfledged and updated RealTime Antivirus software in your system running for constant protection against threats from the open Internet.

Here are the free online scanners:

  1. Free Antivirus Check from Trend Micro website.
  2. Free Trojan check from Windows Security website.

You need to be logged on as administrator since these websites require a small ActiveX Control to be downloaded and installed for the scanning to take place.

2 Responses so far.

  1. One more free virus scan which claims virus definitions that are updated every two hours. Check out Virus Scan

  2. One more free virus scan, which I just found:, here you have to upload the file in order the Online Scanner to scan it. That way, you are limited to scanning only one file at a time. Perhaps this would be useful when a quick scan is required.
