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.
