    Why doesn't ESET create a web-based free online scanner ?

    The school of thought here is that there's a free 30 day full feature trial version of NOD32 available for download -->HERE<--
    Much better in my opinion than a web based scanner would ever be.
    Or if somebody just wanted to test a couple of files they could try http://www.virustotal.com/

    Cheers :)

    and when performing a scan with an online scanner you are also prompted to download a part of the engine, than the signatures.... and you better download the installer and you have it free for 30 days to protect your computer even on-access not only on-demand which is all an online scanner can do. ;)

    It was in joking reference to the post above it which said it's better to download a trial version.:)
    Only problem with a trial version is the trial runs out, an online scanner can be accessed anytime.

    So do people just want to be protected, or do some people want to waste their time trying to figure out what has infected them after the fact?

    Better to trial a solution and after you have satisfied yourself then go ahead and buy it I think.

    If you just need to test a file before you run it because you have no on-demand or on-access protection, or if you want a second opinion then virustotal does that already.

    Cheers :)
