Check files for a virus

Have you ever downloaded a file, double clicked it and heard your computer running but nothing happened? Sometime it’s nothing, something didn’t work, the file was corrupt….  But sometimes it’s a virus or could be.

Like everyone should, I have virus protection on my computer, it auto updates once a week, but this week I had the above scare. I rescaned the file with my virus software and it said it was ok, but do we trust each piece of software 100%.. NO.  So along comes Virus Total. If you have a file you need tested, use the browse button at the top of the page, find the file and send it to them. Within minutes the screen will start testing the vile with a number of different virus scanners.

Oh, the file I had clicked.. no virus 🙂
