Does anyone know if the panda online scan deletes harmful material that it finds or eif it just alerts you and lets you know that you are infected? I was thinking about trying it out again. a couple of weeks ago i tried it and it was going for around 30-40 minutes and it froze at %16.....
just curious.

-thank you for your time.

Hello Sharpie,

You can use Panda ActiveScan 2.0 whenever you want to make sure that your PC is free from all types of threats. Also, if you are registered or have bought the paid version you will be able to disinfect the threats that ActiveScan 2.0 finds on your PC. You have the following options:

* Scan your PC without registering: ActiveScan 2.0 performs an in-depth scan of your PC, but doesn’t disinfect the threats it finds on your computer. This scan allows you to find out if your PC is infected.

* Register free: If you register free, you will be able to perform custom scans (quick scans, scans of specific files and folders, etc.). Besides, you will be able to disinfect certain types of threats (viruses, Trojans and worms).

* Buy the paid version: This version allows you to perform customized scans and disinfect all the threats that ActiveScan 2.0 finds on your PC (spyware, rootkits, etc.).


As you can see above, upon registering, you will be able to disinfect certain threats found, but this is limited to just Viruses, Trojans and Worms.

Two excellent Online Scanners I use and recommend:
F-Secure Online Scanner
ESET Online Scanner
