On their site it is written that only one on-demand scan will be performed.Does that mean if I run the online scanner on my pc for once and clean detected items,I will not be able to use it in future?There is also a 30day unlimited trial offer is given.Not sure if this is about their private wifi or online scanner.Seeking some advice and feeling terrified.

What web page did you see that information?

The main scanner page and FAQs do not say it can only be used one time.

http://www.eset.com/int/home/products/online-scanner/
http://www.eset.com/int/home/products/online-scanner/faq/

After every scan, you have the option to uninstall the ESET Online Scanner with all its components or leave them for future scanning.

Are you confusing Eset Online Scanner with other Eset products such as NOD anti-virus and Eset Smart Security? NOD AV, Smart Security and other for purchase Eset products do have the 30 day trial.

These are the trial products http://www.eset.com/us/home/products/

Online Scanner is not a for-purchase product, therefore there is no limitation of its use.

There is conflicting and ambiguous information at ESET:

The online scanner that quietman7 refers too: http://www.eset.com/int/home/products/online-scanner/

No mention of limited use is correct.

Now the ambiguity.

The ESET Home Page that the member says he found the Online Scanner: http://www.eset.com/us/online-scanner/

This is specifically the ambiguity:
Online Virus Scanner
One-time scan
On-demand
Manual process
Detects and removes threats



Add to that both URL's include the term Online Scanner.

The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.

If for any reason you are not sure of the version of Online scanner, at the bottom it says >>>

 

>> Optimized for Internet Explorer ....... Chrome and Firefox users will need to download and run a small utility file before starting scan.
Need help? Click here << and this will take you to what we normally use as the Online Scanner ........

 

The other linked version is for a Trial Run of the normal ESET NOD32 retail product only, but it is a bit "Wrongly Worded" for the 30 day free retail trial.
