Online Virus Scanner from ESET

Online Scanner is a program which runs in your web browser and can check for and remove malware. It is not configurable, and cannot prevent your computer from being infected by malware.

ESET Online Scanner implemented as an ActiveX control, and requires Internet Explorer 5.0 or later. Compatibility with other browsers (Firefox, Opera, Netscape, etc.) was added. The only thing you have to do is to agree to the installation of ESET Smart Installer, an application, which will install and launch ESET Online Scanner in a new browser window.

How to uninstall ESET Online Scanner?
After every scan an option to uninstall ESET Online Scanner with all its components is provided. It is easy, convenient and can be done directly via the graphic user interface by clicking on the corresponding checkbox and hitting the "uninstall on close" button.
To remove the ESET Online Scanner components from your computer, start the Add or Remove Programs (filename: appwiz.cpl) applet from Control Panel, select the ESET Online Scanner entry and click Remove. A restart may be required to complete uninstallation.

Administrator Privileges
When running under Windows Vista ESET Online Scanner switches automatically to administrator privileges when clicking on the "Start" button.

If the ESET Online Scanner is unable to run even when using Administrator privileges. It is possible, that a third-party security software prevents ESET Online Scanner from running by setting up a so-called "killbit". To avoid this problem use regedit.exe, where under
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\ActiveX Compatibility\{7530BFB8-7293-4D34-9923-61A11451AFC5}

you delete the value "Compatibility Flags" REG_DWORD 0x00000400.
ESET Online Scanner now includes anti-stealth — ESET's well known anti-rootkit technology used also in ESET Smart Security and ESET NOD32 Antivirus.
