Scan Files Online for Free with 37 Antivirus Programs
Most users will only install one antivirus software for their computers. While some believe that only to commercial antivirus vendors they can trust their data safety, some are convinced that free antivirus application has already provided sufficient protection for their data from malware attacks.
The main problem may come when some of you receive a suspicious file and for some reason you cannot rely on the scanning result of the file reported by your installed antivirus alone. You need to check the file with other antivirus programs to ensure that it doesn’t contain any harmful stuff like trojan, worm, virus and the likes.
To gain access to more antiviruses, you can uninstall your current antivirus software and replace it temporary with others. If you plan to scan the file with at least 5 antivirus programs, then you need to go through the install and uninstallation process 5 times. What a time waste.
Another possible solution is to open the file using your friend’s computer with different antivirus program installed. It means you’ll have to find three of your friends that each other has different antivirus application installed. Again, it is a time waste.
