NEW DELHI, INDIA: F-Secure’s malware detection application—Online Scanner offers new features. The Online Scanner checks PCs thoroughly, detecting any viruses, spyware or other malware.

The Online Scanner has long been a popular feature of F-Secure’s website and has helped clean up hundreds of thousands of PCs from viruses. F-Secure’s statistics show that about 20 percent of the Online Scanner users do in fact have viruses, worms or other malware on their computer. The Online Scanner is free to use for anyone concerned that their computer has been infected with a virus.

Venugopala Raja Palakirti, Regional Sales Director—India and SAARC, F-Secure said, “After you scan for viruses with the Online Scanner, it’s always a good idea to use the F-Secure Health Check tool, also free, which finds any vulnerabilities on your PC. Used together, the Online Scanner and Health Check provide a great way of checking that your PC is safe to use online.”

It is important to remember that the free Online Scanner gives a manual scan that checks and cleans the PC but does not provide automatic protection after that. To prevent a PC from being infected again, you should install a full security product with real-time protection.

The new features in Online Scanner include support for Firefox, quick scan, new interface and localized in more than 20 languages.
