Another site of the BSI is www.bsi.bund.de
It's somehow more "basic" in design but is providing more informations about current threats as well as information pages of several viruses.

http://housecall.trendmicro.com/ is a good online scanner.

Otherwise, if you think your system is virus infected, booting up a linux live cd, running clamscan, running the update, and scanning will likely find any virii.

AVG Free Version
http://www.grisoft.com

Avast Free Version:
http://www.avast.com/

MicroWorld Free
http://www.mwti.net/antivirus/free_utilities.asp


For online scanners, Housecall, as Alex suggested, plus:

http://www.pandasoftware.com/activescan/com/activescan_principal.htm
http://securityresponse.symantec.com/

For Anti-trojan (not free)? Trojan Hunter (http://www.misec.net/products/), TDS-3 (http://www.diamondcs.com.au/index.php?page=home), and BOClean (http://www.nsclean.com/boclean.html)

To upload a single suspicious file and have it scanned by multiple AVs:

Hi, Av Personal is realy good, but I can also recommand Kaspersky Antivirus. It's not free, but I have a code from a pc magazin ->So I got a one year free use.



The whole is more then the sum of its particles.

Kaspersky is one of the best AV programs that exist today, however it's not free. It does have trial versions but I'm not sure how (if) limited they are.

If you have a questionable file you want to scan, you can use their web scanner at Kaspersky Online Virus Scanner.

One of the best is Linux. No real viruses exist in the first place!

See:

Good luck,
