Best Free Online Virus Check Software?
I have used a few free online virus check software programs, I want to see what other people have used and what they find the best.
I have used:
- Trend Mirco
- Bit Defender
Have you used any of these, or another I haven't heard of?
What have been your experiences... good or bad?
Also, if you have any thoughts or recomendations for Spyware software, online or that you download to your system?
And/or antivirus software to run on your system.

I always use BitDefender and Ewido as onlinescanners in safe mode.
Also Symantec, KasperSky and F-Secure has good online scanners.
As anti spyware/adware programs i use Ad Aware and Spybot S&D.
Ad-Aware 2007 Free.
Ad-Aware 2007 Free remains the most popular anti-spyware product for computer users around the world, with nearly one million downloads every week. Our free anti-spyware version provides you with advanced protection against spyware that secretly attaches and takes control of your computer, resulting in aggressive advertising pop-ups, sluggish computer activity, even identity theft through stolen bank details, passwords, and credit card account numbers. If you want real-time scanning capabilities, consider upgrading to Ad-Aware 2007 Plus for real-time protection against spyware, all the time.
Spybot - Search & Destroy detects and removes spyware, a relatively new kind of threat not yet covered by common anti-virus applications. spyware silently tracks your surfing behaviour to create a marketing profile for you that is transmitted without your knowledge to the compilers and sold to advertising companies. If you see new toolbars in your Internet Explorer that you haven't intentionally installed, if your browser crashes inexplicably, or if your home page has been "hijacked" (or changed without your knowledge), your computer is most probably infected with spyware. Even if you don't see the symptoms, your computer may be infected, because more and more spyware is emerging. Spybot-S&D is free, so there's no harm giving it a try to see if something has invaded your computer.

Bitdefender online scan is good at finding virus & trojans plus it removes them for free.
Panda scan good at removing virus & spyware.
Kaspersky scan good at finding viruses & nameing them but does not remove them:
