Today I’m gonna give you some tools to protect your computer and to realize a part of informations you give by surfing on internet. Indeed, computer security is not taught by default and is often learned "on the spot".

-There’s some online Scans which offer you to scan your files online with several antivirus at the same time:
Virus Total
No Virus Thanks Scanner
BitDefender QuickScan
Kaspersky Security Scan
ESET Online Scanner
Virus Scan Jotti
Anubis is a slightly different service whose analyze suspicious programs or suspicious URLs. It will literally launch the program or URL in question to analyze its behavior and generate a report. Select the file or specify the URL in question, fill out the security captcha and click on "Submit for Analysis" to start the analysis.

With them, you will be able to know if the files you want to download or the site you want to visit are infected.
