    Doctor Web, Ltd., the developer of the popular Dr.Web anti-virus, announces release of the new free service developed for users traveling on the World Wide Web with the help of Mozilla, Mozilla Firefox, MS Internet Explorer or Opera.

    New free service by Doctor Web, Ltd. is designed as a plug-in, which scans for viruses and different kinds of malicious programs, such as dialers, spywares or adwares any link to a page before it is s opened, or any file before it is downloaded onto a computer with the most up-to-date version of the Dr.Web scanner and hot add-ons to the virus base, released twice per hour – no other antivirus company releases updates so often!

    To scan a link or a file, you should neither to install the Dr.Web antivirus onto your computer, nor download the file you want to open or save — the scanning for viruses is done on the servers of the Global updating system of the Dr.Web antivirus. Depending on the size of the checked file, the scanning will be done in several seconds and then you can open the page or download the file and never fear of a virus attack.

    To enjoy our service, just install the plug-in for your browser:

    Click the "Install Now" on the page with the plug-in. Depending on your security settings, enable installation of modules from web-site addons.mozilla.org. In most cases, a window warning on installation will appear. The window will have two buttons "Cancel" and "Install now". Press "Install now". Restart browser. (More info)

    Since it doesn't scan locally, there should be no conflicts.

    From the download site. This plugin allows you to check any file you are about to download, any page you are about to visit with online version of Dr.Web anti-virus! New menu item "Scan with Dr.Web" will appear on hyperlink context menu.
