Default online antivirus?

is there any reliable site you can upload a file to and have them scan it with multiple antivirus programs?

this is more an issue of convenience. i came across a suspicious file a few days ago and the checks i ran didn't turn up anything strange, but the time involved in scanning with multiple programs and then opening the file in a sandbox is more than i'd like to spend if i come across another one.

i'm not asking for something like dr. web, which while a good program doesn't really provide the kind of scan i'm looking for.

(i put this in the general discussion because it's really not a technical issue just a question)

this is very much what i'm looking for. do you know how reliable it is? i tried to scan a file (which i know will show up with false positives in many scanners) and it just read the sha256 and told me, 'oh i scanned this 3 years ago, it's fine'.

the 30mb limit is also something that's a little troubling but will cover most files i'd want scanned anyway.

Barring any problems with your computer you can also simply scan the file or folder in Safe Mode, while some spyware and viruses are able to bypass the scans in normal mode, Safe Mode makes detection much easier, unless the virus was able to disrupt your detectors, at which point you want to make a full online scan, and not just a file scan, also in Safe Mode.

If you are really worried, I would isolate the file in a CD and delete it from your computer.

That said, what file is it? Some files come up as suspicious by detectors while they are not, so that can be confusing.

Here's another one:

http://virusscan.jotti.org/en

I always use this in combination with Virus Total when I download .exe files I am unsure of. Also, if the file has been scanned before, just select the option to re-scan. It'll do a full fresh re-scan for you.

i don't generally worry about files on my computer since i can just scan once then run them in a sandbox and watch what they're trying to do. it tends to be issues on friends' computers where i don't want to spend the usual amount of time i'd spend fixing my own problems and just want to locate/verify any suspicious files before leaving them there.

the file which was causing issues in my original post just had a very odd way of unpacking itself, but once unpacked didn't cause any problems.
