Free Online Anti Virus Scan for Broadband Users

December 6th, 2006

I have had some comments posted by readers looking for Free Anti Virus solutions. Here are couple of anti virus software solutions available online [run from within your browser, you may have to accept an ActiveX control] which are also FREE!!!. Most viruses will be cured but if your computer is deeply affected by some kind of malware or badware then you have to call your computer expert to fix it.

Some of the ones which we have tested or used are as follows.

Trend Micro HouseCallThis service from Trend Micro is absolutely free which scans your PC hard drive for any sort of viruses or malware / spyware. HouseCall cleans most infections.

Windows Live OneCare Scanner – If Microsoft had designed and implemented Windows in a way like UNIX, then we would be in a different world today with no Virus or Malware. Now Microsoft itself has jumped into the bandwagon to offer online antivirus scanner. I haven’t tried this, if you do, do let me know the results.

McAfee Freescan – This is free service from world renowned anti-virus company – McAfee. Requires IE with ActiveX control to be accepted. It gives you an option to clean your system.

Symantec Internet SecurityOnline virus scanner from the well known security company – Symantec. It can detect most virus threat but won’t clean the infected file or repair it in the FREE version. Requires IE with ActiveX.

I have found Trend Micro to be the best service. Let me know your experience.
