    I need a list of 3 or so TOP tier AV tools that I can scan AND remove malware?

    Any links?

    Why does it need to be a website AV scanner? Many, but not all of them, require you to use Internet Explorer and install an Active-X add-on.

    If you want to use downloaded scanners that do not install, give these a try. All of the following have up-to-date or close to it malware signatures at the time of download.

    SuperAntiSpyware Portable
    http://www.superantispyware.com/portablescanner.html
    Dr.Web Cureit
    http://www.freedrweb.com/cureit/?lng=en
    Emsisoft Emergency Kit
    http://www.emsisoft.com/en/software/eek/
    Kaspersky AVP Tool (Installs and Uninstalls)
    http://support.kaspersky.com/viruses/avptool2010?level=2

    I like to boot and do a scan with the AVIRA Rescue System CD. The first download link is an exe file which contains the ISO Image along with built-in burn software that burns the ISO image to CD or DVD. The second download link is for the ISO Image file.

    If you go to the Eset online scanner page using a browser other than IE, then you'll be able to download an installer. You may then use it as an on demand scanner. :)

    after first run you will have to download only 30 mb of updates, next time only a few KBytes
    you have threat detection and cleaning in the same package

    Thanks guys, now I can do this why ever would a user "buy" an AV scanner!
    H.ll I could have 2 or 3 freebies (as none catch 100%) and pay nothing?

    Never mind the answer must be to have the real time scanning as files arrive or get accessed.

    bitdefender quickscan (quickscan.bitdefender.com) uses an applet and works in most (if not all) browsers. their trafficlight toolbar (trafficlight.bitdefender.com) (iirc) provides blocking as well as scanning of site content too.

    This thread produced more than I thought it would at the start!

    Thanks a lot.

    Many solid AV's for people to use "free" !

    Can't see any good reason NOT to exploit one of them that isn't my main line AV!

    I remember a few years back i used to use the Panda one (When i say a few years it's around 2002-2003) and it did wonders on my PC and others PC.

    Everytime when someone was infected i used it and it always detected. :D

    It is a very large list! TY

    It could be even easier to use IF it had columns 1 for XP, Vista, W7 and also showing 32 bit and 64 bit. But as it is free I shouldn't complain.;)

    You're both welcome. There are keys for software specific to those OS, and compatible with 64-bit though.

    Yes I saw those keys but for aging eyes and those with time pressures they are very hard to spot and way too small.

    My guess is it would be easier to maintain this list as a table with OS columns.

    Not really, it'll produce a lot of duplicates and extra work, especially when a new version of Windows is released or phased out.

    Hi J_L:


    I can't believe it! After many years here I noted that you and I have exactly the same number of posts ( well for a second or two anyway)

    I see the point on the work! I was thinking only of myself!
