ESET Online Scanner, an unpaid tool, is able to scan for and remove malware on computers. It is based on the same ThreatSense technology and signatures as ESET Smart Security or ESET NOD32 antivirus security software. This makes it capable of detecting and removing all kinds of malware without the need to install. It is also able to search for malware in a variety of areas of the computer, including autostart areas, boot sectors and the registry. It is also able to resolve problems after the computer restarts as as rescan files previously deemed infected.

The software is accessible via the internet and can be accessed by anyone with access to the internet. Once it has been launched users are able to select which parts of their computer they wish to scan for malware. This process may take a long time since the application must download the latest signature database before it is able to begin scanning. Once the scanning is complete you will be able to view the results and any threats that were discovered will be removed. It is important to note that this program does not provide any protection on a continuous basis and can only be used to spot dangerous components before they have a chance to cause any harm.

This is a useful tool to remove malware from a computer, specifically in cases where the computer isn’t protected by an antivirus program. Although it does not provide the same level of protection as a paid program however, it is a step ahead of the many free online checkers and has the ability to check multiple areas of the computer.
