Online Virus Scanners

There are also ‘online virus scanners’ provided by some of the top anti-virus companies, these allow you to scan your computer for any virus using the latest protection.

To use these virus scanners you need to be connected to the Internet and then go to the anti-virus companies website and follow their instructions.

You may wonder why we have mentioned online virus scanners when we mention a perfectly good FREE virus scanner above, it’s because you’ll find that there is not one anti-virus scanner that can protect you against every virus around. All anti-virus programs give you good protection, but with the large number of virus around and also new ones being unleashed all the time unfortunatley some slip through the virus scanners. By using another anti-virus scanner occasionally as well as your regular anti-virus scanner you will find that you are getting the best possible protection for your computer.

We have listed below and provided Internet links to some of the best FREE online virus scanners for you to use. Take a look at the companies websites and follow their instructions to get your FREE virus scans.
