Trend Micro, is one of the online scans recommended by the members of this board quite often, me included.
Most of the online scans require an ActiveX control to work, that's why most of them will only work using Internet Explorer.
Just because it says ActiveX, doesn't necessarily mean it's a bad thing, it's just that writers of malicious code will sometimes use it in the garbage they write.
ActiveX can be used for good, and evil.
If you want to use a scanner that doesn't use ActiveX, Trend Micro has an online scan that doesn't require it.
You can run this scanner using Firefox, which doesn't use ActiveX.
