ESET Online Scanner is a free tool that can be used to remove and scan malware from computers. It utilizes the same ThreatSense technology and signatures as ESET Smart Security or ESET NOD32 antivirus security software. It can identify and remove many types of malware, without the need to install. It also has the ability to scan various areas of the computer, such as the autostart secure data room for business region, the boot sector and registry. It is also able to fix issues after the computer restarts as in rescaning files that were previously thought to be to be infected.
The software is accessible via the internet and is accessible to anyone with internet access. Once it has been launched, users can then choose which parts of their computer they want to scan for malware. This can take some time as the application must download the most recent signature databases before it can begin scanning. However, once this is complete and the results are available to be reviewed and any threats found are removed. It is worth mentioning that this software doesn’t offer continuous protection, but can be used to detect potentially dangerous components before they have the chance to cause harm.
Overall, this is a helpful tool for removing malware from a computer and is especially useful if the computer is not protected by other antivirus programs. It might not provide the same level of protection as paid solutions, but it is still miles ahead of most online checkers that are free and can scan multiple areas on the computer.
