Free Online Anti-Virus Scan from Trend Micro – the HouseCall
By on February 21st, 2010

Here at Techie-Buzz, we keep our eyes open for free and easy to use online services. One of the most important things you need to manage is your computer’s security. If you surf the internet, it’s always possible that you’ve either gotten infected, or may suspect you’ve been infected by Malware, Trojans or Viruses.

Trend Micro, one of the most trusted providers of security software, also offers a free online anti-virus scanner, named HouseCall.

Don’t consider online scanners as any replacement for installing good anti-virus and anti-malware tools. The online scanners are there in case you need a second opinion.

It’s easy to use and you can see the steps involved below in a screen-show I’ve inserted.
