    Trend Micro that's using Java. It has best detection because there isn't any other good non ActiveX scanner.
    Why don't you get yourself a trial of lets say Kaspersky and test the machine?

    thanks, chiawaikian and RejZoR. if Trend Micro's as good as i'll find i'll try that.

    i might try KAV. i just installed eScan but it's disappeared, so i want to find that first. do you happen to know which command launches eScan? i've tried escan, microworld and webscan, i can't think of anything else at the moment.

    It's not an online only scanner, but Panda is free for Linux: did you try it?

    :)

    There isn't an online version, but FRISK Software has a free version of F-Prot for Linux (home use only).

    Why do you want to scan your linux? :eek: Linux AV scanners only exist to scan files who get transported to Windows machines (when used as a mailserver for example).

    Just don't use a root account when working on Linux, and maybe consider the SE-Linux to add extra protection: http://www.nsa.gov/selinux/
