VirusTotal Scanner Review

Sven Sorensen
An easy GUI to the superb online virus meta-scanner virustotal
A review of VirusTotal Scanner by Sven Sørensen

VirusTotal Scanner is a Windows front-end GUI to the very popular VirusTotal site which provides a free virus metascan by uploading files to their web site.

The whole point of VirusTotal is to give users access to a wide range of different virus scanners. While having virus protection installed is recommended, not all vendors can detect all viruses. With VirusTotal Scanner, you get access to almost all popular virus scanners.

The application provides a user interface which enables you to search the VirusTotal archives for tests of the file you wish to test. Currently, it uses around 50 different virus scanners.

VirusTotal Scanner is a portable application which does not need to be installed in order to function but you can also have it on your system so scanning files is as easy as a right-click within a Windows Explorer window.

Overall, this application is perfect for those who have downloaded files from questionable sources and can be even more useful if you suspect your system has been compromised already after having downloaded a file from the web.

We highly recommend VirusTotal and by extension, this free Windows frontend application "VirusTotal Scanner".

VirusTotal Scanner features and highlights:
  • Easily & Quickly perform VirusTotal scan of your file
  • Performs Hash based scan without uploading the file
  • Right click context menu to launch it directly by simply right clicking on the file
  • 'Drag & Drop' feature to quickly choose the file
  • Displays detailed VirusTotal Scan report
  • Very easy to use with attractive interface
  • Completely Portable Tool and can be run directly
  • Includes optional Installer for local Installation & Uninstallation
