5 reliable sites where you can have Quick Computer Scan for FREE !!


There are hundreds of sites on the web that provide a free computer scan to help you detect harmful viruses on your computer and the problem is that you can't trust all of them. I can guarantee that half of those are full of craps and might even be harmful to your computer. Those fake virus scanners are the ones you should be aware of.


Now in this post, I'll provide you the list of important sites that you can trust and have a free quick scan of your computer. I've listed five of them, here they are:



Panda Security is highly reliable site that give you free computer scan online. All you have to do is visit its homepage and download the plungin( ActiveScan 2.0) to start your scan for the first time. Once of have downloaded the plungin(174 KB) then you can scan your computer regularly for free !!

BitDefender one of the best at this job. This site is what I'd personally recommend as I believe its the fastest and best quick scanner online. If you are using it for the first time, you have to download small plungin or addon ( in case of Firefox ) and then start working

Here's the link : Scan



HouseCall is also one of the free Online Virus Scanner. To use it, first you have to download  HouseCall in your computer then perform QuickScan on your computer. With my experience, with its large virus database, it is very reliable and powerful and amazingly browser independent.



Virustotal is a Online service that analyzes suspicious files and URLs and facilitates the quick detection of viruses, worms, trojans, and all kinds of malware detected by antivirus engines. VirusTotal's email interface lets you upload files via email and receive the scan results in your mailbox. The files are uploaded as email attachments and the results can be received either in plain text or XML.
The files sent via email have a lower priority, therefore, the scan results will not always be sent back immediately.

At last but not the least, is F-Secure. It scans your computer for free, now to run this free service, first you have to download all-important Java (latest Java) and after you've done that, you're ready for its service. You can download the Java here: Download
