Recommended Online Scanner
It is important to note that online virus scanners are by no means recommended as a source of protection against malware threats. The best protection against malware threats is to have up-to-date antivirus software running on your machine at all times. Please visit our Computer System Cleanup Page for more information. Observance and consideration of the user agreement of any online scanner is recommended prior to running the scanner on your machine. It is also important to note that ONLY ONE online scanner should be accessed at any time on a single machine.
