Use that FREE online virus scanner. It's the best I've ever used, and I use it weekly. It picks up on almost every new virus out there, has a heuristic scanner (finds unknown viruses by pattern), and it is updated constantly.
But, before you scan, no matter what you use, disable System Restore, and enter safe mode, so all the backups, and system files are scanned.

I just tried http://www.pandasoftware.com/activescan/ and it I was rejected. They require MS
Internet Explorer 4.0 or later version. I find it odd that they are so limiting in the tools for there sight. I would think they would want to make the service available to everyone.
If you spend more on coffee than on IT security, you will be hacked. What\'s more, you deserve to be hacked.
