    AVG and Avast are free

    Dont forget to try cleaning with adaware or spybot too.

    Kaspersky Webscan

    Trendmicro Housecall

    Panda Activescan

    Symantec Security Check

    BitDefender Online

    McAfee FreeScan

    Command On Demand

    F-Secure Online

    Arcabit Online



    If you have a single file that you are suspicious about I would recommend uploading to Virus Total, it uses multiple different antivirus programs and gives you results in seconds.
