    I used this Online scanner from Panda today. Its called activescan. It downloaded componants onto my computer that I thought was for scanning
    but it downloaded a Virus instead. It was very difficult to remove so be warned dont use this.

    BPS spyware adware remover

    dont use this it installs a port 80 blocker into your registry that prevents you from accessing the internet. The only way I could figure out to remove it was to restore my registry.

    Beefcarver. Panda activescan does not install virusses on your computer, it a respected and free solution to scanning/cleaning. Most likely you have got your virus somewhere else. :)
