tlr is talking about ONLINE scanning. That is a different thing than what you two mention.
8. Does Online Scanner protect my computer from getting infected?
No, BitDefender Online Scanner scans the computer only for existing viruses. For a complete protection use the commercial versions.

Every once in a while, when i feel some malware might have slipped in while my pc was unprotected for a moment, i go to Symantec Security Check.

The good thing about Online Bitdefender is that iy can actually remove infections, that's new. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/thumb.gif

I use avast! Antivirus, along with Yahoo! Anti-spyware, SpywareBlaster, and Ad-Aware SE.

EDIT: Oops, I thought this was a thread about anti-virus software in general. I've never used an online scanner because they take too long. :D

there's also an online scan at a site called "trendmicro"... has anyone tried that? I've used it before, it's free. They also have a free online spyware scanner.
