I'm late to the party, but not by much. Version 13 of Sysinternal's Autoruns program now has the ability to submit startup files to VirusTotal.


Imagine being able to scan the most probable infected files on a PC against 57 or more anti virus programs in just a few minutes. I've cured a few systems in the last week with this setup.

There's still a lot of FP on VirusTotal. When you upload a file to VirusTotal, you match it against all the FP in the databases of the Antiviruses it uses, so I would still be extremely careful when relying on that method.

A lot of investigative tools have been doing this.

Process Hacker, System Explorer, Process Explorer and AnVir Task Manager Free allow you to right-click on a process and submit it to Jotti's virusscan, VirusTotal, or Comodo for analysis.

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 Comodo.

Right-clicking on a process in Process Explorer or 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.

When using such tools, I generally recommend to get more than one opinion...
