The online scanner

Do you have a virus or a spyware in your PC, or you want to be sure that your PC is clean? then you don’t have to install another antivirus or do format “like some friends I know the only answer for all the problems they have is the format :)” any way if you can enter the Net this site will give you a greet help. Because they scan your PC and give you the name of the virus or some of them clean your PC of the malwares, there are a lot of site that scan the PC but I picked the powerful ones :

1- Trend Micro: the best web scanner I’ve ever used, you can choose if you want to scan a virus or just a spyware and fast.

Cleans: Yes

2- Bitdefender: very active company and one of the first site I visit if I want to do a scan.

Cleans: Yes

3- Kaspersky: I know it doesn’t clean the files but it’s Kaspersky one of the big malware database, so you will know the name of the malware and you could do a search about it and how to delete it.

Note:

This list of scanners that scan your full hard-disk. The engine underlying each scan is noted so you can avoid duplication with scanners you already have. If a freeware version of the scanner (or at least roughly the same engine) is available for local use it is indicated. Most allow you to scan specific folders as well. Almost all have options to scan archives, those that do not are “tested” by scanning with a zipped version of eicar, though this is not a foolproof test. A few scanners only detect problems but do not offer to disinfect or even delete the offending file; these are indicated.
