    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 VirusTotal for scanning individual files. Never used an online scanner for an entire system.

    I don't think they are very useful. Another form of promotion which gives a false sense of security.

    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.
