Authorize it to run from your account. Once done, you will see a page with a big button saying “Run the Scan”. Click on it and you will see a new popup window. ESET then asks you to download ESET smart installer that you can easily uninstall once the scan is completed. But if you are running the test on Internet Explorer, downloading this tool won’t be necessary.

ESET say that this tool can detect and remove malware from your computer. ESET online scanner uses the same ThreatSense scanning technology as used in ESET smart security and NOD32 antivirus software. ESET online scanner therefore offers free online scan for your computer.
