Tools to Scan a Suspicious File Online for Viruses

by Darko Johnson

The tools below use more than one anti virus to scan your files (most of them use over 10.)

It’s a hassle to install more than one anti-virus program. And then run and scan a single file using all of them. That’s the primary reason why these internet tools are extremely useful. Here are the best I found:
