    I sometimes use the Kapersky online scanner.

    It seems very thorough.

    But unless something has changed, it just finds malware, but provides no utility to get rid of it.

    Trend's online scanner removes stuff, but for some odd reason, it won't work on my computer anymore.

    Panda used to have a great online scanner. But they scaled it back to a faster scanner, and it finds much less now.

    No, but it shows you the location of anything found, so that you can delete it manually.

    It will remove viruses but not other types of malware.

    Yeah it's pretty useless. Go with HouseCall instead if you actually want to remove nasties.

    Not useless at all, what good would a online scanner that can remove malware be, if it can't find the malware in the first place. In this scenario and if you can find your way in windows (many around here can), the Kaspersky scanner would a very good choice and if you scan first with Panda and Housecall & let them remove what they can, a final check with Kaspersky would be a nice finishing touch.:)

    Does the online scanner use the infamous ADS? If possible to give an answer, how long does the online scanner take compared to the installed package? Thanks.

    No it does not, only the full program uses it.

    It takes a little longer than the installed full version, but i have only tried it to see what it was like. No it doesn't use ADS there is no point in using them on this type of scanner.:)

    Another KAV on-line scan question.

    Ok, so this is probably either a dumb question or one that is impossible to answer (no one has probably ever tested it, and who completely trusts the tests anyways) but here goes: How does the KAV on-line scan compare to an installed KAV complete system on-demand scan? We all know KAV's reputation for on-demand scanning; is the on-line scan just as excellent? Thanks.

    According to the KAV website:-
    So in these respects it is not as good as the installed version.

    I've no idea whether the online scanner has the option of using 'extended database' (for spyware etc) 'cos I have never tried!

    Just a heads up !!!

    The post by auriell contains a Direct link to an AVI file which can execute your player automatically. Could be ok, but you never know ?

    It is ok. I don't know other way to post it.

    You can also dowload it from this site, but the version of movie is only 3fps and it wont run sometimes:

    How about you simply said what you mean by "Not always...", instead of this polish video, i do get the rootkit part, but that is true of any online scanner.

    So what's your point, now that you have decided to open a 2 months old thread?

    The answer is within your post - Rootkit. The second thing is the tool, that allows you to run Kaspersky online even when you are offline (and has many other options as rootkit detection/removal, hiden processes and services detection/removal, it also monitors launching of apps, dlls, drivers, net acces, etc) :)

    Yesterday Kaspersky onlinescan took 45 min on my pc.

    To my knowledge doesnt remove. But its the best hint - if it doesnt show any - you most probably dont have any!

    1 or two times a year its big scan day and that always ends up with Kaspersky.

    The only scanner who found something this time was Ewido online (also removes) ; 2 tracking cookies - thats all.

    Best Regards
