Do Not Take Home A Virus; Scan It First

scan Do Not Take Home A Virus; Scan It First

Everyone hates viruses. They mess up your computer, sometimes try to steal your personal information and do other nasty stuff.

One way to prevent from getting a virus is to scan files you have recently downloaded from the web.
Sometimes people secretly sneak trojan’s, malware and other types of viruses to mess up your PC on purpose. I know a great site to help you prevent this problem and not take home a virus.

First of all visit Virus Total

 Do Not Take Home A Virus; Scan It First

Right under Upload A File click Browse. Select the file. Pretty simple and for even more, you might say
“Protection” click on Send It Over SSL.

After completing all these steps press Send File.

This will begin scanning the file with tons of other virus scanners to get even better results. At the end it will tell you if its clean or if it has any suspicious things inside of it.

  1. My computer is a dinosaur so it's always getting viruses. I NEEDED this post. Thanx

  2. I don’t use VirusTotal anymore. On their privacy policy, it says they will keep the files you uploaded and scanned. I now use AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition 2011 because it comes with Resident Shield, and will quickly scan every file before it’s opened, in the background.

    I really thought that having a stable browser, like Firefox, and an anti-virus / anti-spyware program installed can protect my system. Maybe because I was using the free version. But yeah, I did notice some of my files were infected when I tried VirusTotal out. I appreciate this, man! Thanks!
