Nice online virus-testing site

a friend passed this to me and speaks highly of it.  it's a free service that will let you upload (or email) files to it which it then checks for viruses using multiple well-known virus scanning engines.  great for a second opinion if your antivirus reports something suspicious.

I was considering reinstalling Kaspersky Anti-Virus just for on-demand use, when I discovered that they now offer a web-based scanner:

So screw installing KAV; I've been using this free scanner.  Why they use ActiveX and MSIE is beyond me--I mean, is there something wrong with simply having people download and run a little application?  Whatever, it's the best thing going.
