Microsoft’s Windows Sysinternal Suite has released the latest version of Process Explorer v16.0 that has an awesome feature which allows a user to scan any running program files with a web-based multi-antivirus scanner VirusTotal.

I can foresee malware being written now to prevent process explorer from running so you cannot do that.

Right-clicking on a process in ProcessHacker or System Explorer allows you to send it (File Check) to Jotti's virusscan or VirusTotal. Process Hacker also allows sending it to Camas Comodo.

Right-clicking on a process in AnVir TaskManager Free allows you to send it to VirusTotal.

If you are using Firefox, you can use the VTzilla Add-on to check (analyze) a file for malware at VirusTotal before downloading and saving it to you computer.

VTzilla is a Mozilla Firefox browser plugin that simplifies the process of scanning Internet resources with VirusTotal. It allows you to download files directly with VirusTotal's web application prior to storing them in your PC. Moreover, it will not only scan files, but also URLs. The scanning options are embedded in Firefox's context menu and download dialog, making the analysis process as easy as clicking a single button...Once you have checked the file, you will decide whether or not to download it to your PC.
