Here’s a couple of on-line scanners for Malware

I hear and read a lot of questions on how to find out if a computer has been infected with malware. One thing to do is to make sure you have a good anti virus program (with updated signatures) and do a scan of the computer. There are several malware detecting programs that can be downloaded and installed. However, is there a way to do it “right now”?

There are free on-line scanners that do a nice job of detecting malware. In some cases, you are told to download and install the software, but at least you know if you have a problem. These are a few I’ve run into that are well thought of……….

Trend Micro "House Call"

McAfee Free scan

Kaspersky Free Virus Scan
