Panda Nanoscan

Think you’ve been infected by some virus? Running Windows and Internet Explorer? Before you unplug your computer from the network, it might be good to go over to Nanoscan. It uses ActiveX so you have to you Internet Explorer, but it basically runs a quick scan against an Internet database of viruses. It’s not what you’d call a complete scan, but it covers over 800,000 malware signatures. That’s pretty darn good for a preliminary scan to see if you’ve been infected.
What’s more is that it only takes approximiately one minute, depending on your processor and Internet broadband connection.
Worried about who’s giving this out? Don’t sweat it. Panda Software is a very reputable antivirus firm.

    Nanoscan works with Firefox as well – in place of the ActiveX controls it installs a Firefox plug-in.
    Doesn’t require broadband, either – it works just fine on dial-up.
