    From time to time I use Eset online scanner,and have had no problems.
    A lot of the others fail to start,and/or complete.

    So,my vote,and preference,is for ESET.

    Tried them, but they don't seem to perform as well as local scanners.
    Therefore None, excluding cloud programs, and multi-scanning services for single files.

    None of these. I use only VirusTotal for individual files. And occasionally CAMAS and ThreatExpert
