    Which of those two would you use? Both are locally installed free on-demand scanners.

    Eset Online Scanner
    Norton Security Scan

    I only managed to download the Norton with Internet Explorer though it is not ActiveX but a "real" local app.

    Are there other scanners of this sort?

    AFAIK the Norton Security Scan does not offer removal of infections unless you download the version bundled with the old Google Pack. Even then it would only remove viruses, trojans, and worms. It will warn you of other malware.

    The Eset online scanner is not gimped and offers full detection/removal.

    All the above are good recommendations. I've also used a Panda online scanner with good results in the past and I believe Trend Micro still has their House Call available, which worked on line the last time I checked.

    SuperAntiSpyware has an on line scan like Eset if for some reason you prefer not to download the free desktop version.

    Who bought them Eset or Symantec.;):D Guys it's a limited two choice thread. To stay on topic though I'd go with Norton since Eset is my installed Av.

    I usually use F-Secure Online Scanner, since it one of the few scanners which has good detection rates and also cleans up system for free.
    Another good locally based online scanner is Trend Micro Housecall, which in the latest version also browser-independent.
