ESET Online Scanner is an open source tool, can be used to scan for and remove malware from computers. It uses the same ThreatSense technology and signatures as ESET Smart Security or ESET NOD32 antivirus security software. It can detect and remove many types of malware, without the need to install. It is also able to examine a variety of areas on the computer, including autostart areas as well as boot sectors and the registry. It can also try to resolve problems after the computer restarts as as rescan files previously deemed infected.

This web-based software can be accessed by anyone who has access to the internet. After the program is launched, the user is able to select which components they would like to scan for malware. This process can take a while since the application has to download the most recent signature database before it can start scanning. After this has been completed and the results are available to be viewed and then any threats found are removed. It is important to note that this program does not provide continuous protection, but can be used to spot dangerous components before they have the chance to cause any harm.

Overall, this is a great tool to remove malware from a computer. It is especially beneficial if it is not protected by other antivirus software. It may not offer as much protection as paid solutions, but it’s far ahead of other online scanners that are free and can check multiple areas on the computer.
