Scan any suspicious file online for virus

Suppose your antivirus apps detects virus in a file ,but you are not sure about it then there are various sites which will help you verify.

All you have to do is to upload the file to these sites and they will scan it using different antivirus scanners and give the results of each.

But remember these services are by no means 100% safe. If these scanner says 'OK', it does not necessarily mean the file is clean. There could be a whole new virus on the loose. NEVER EVER rely on one single product only even though it utilizes several products like A-Squared,avast,AVG Anti Virus,Avira,AntiVir,BitDefender,Kaspersky,Panda and many more.

These Antivirus sites include jotti , virustotal , scanner.

If you know any more site please tell me via comments.
