What is your favourite online scanner?
They are all at the same poor level, offering way less detection than the installed version. Some of them include a smaller malware database, some don't include heuristics, others aren't always updated...
BTW, I voted to Other, because sometimes I use http://virustotal.com and http://virusscan.jotti.org/ to check suspicious files with many antivirus engines at the same time.
i use Karspersky time to time
i personally like dr web cure it.
I don't use any
Im with guest, i use none but i do upload files to those websites sometimes to be sure
oops i voted None. Actually my favorite online scanners are Hitman pro, MalAware, Prevx Free
I use VirusTotal for scanning individual files. Never used an online scanner for an entire system.
I don't recall I used one... ever.
I do the same
I use none
BitDefender, when I want an alternative as I already have Eset on my computer.
I don't think they are very useful. Another form of promotion which gives a false sense of security.
VirusTotal & Eset
I have never used any online scanner for my entire system..So my vote goes to "Mr. None"
bitdefender gives pretty accurate results i find
I voted Kaspersky because once I used it; actually, I don't use and I don't need an online scanner.
Virus Total or Jotti. Never used any of the main stream online scanners.
Not an AV but my favorite online scanner is Secunia OSI.
