How to Run the ESET Online Anti-Virus Scanner

If a working Anti Virus program is not available on a computer, the ESET Online Scanner can be used to detect and remove virus infections. To use the ESET Online Scanner, take the following steps:

  1. Go to the page: http://www.eset.com/online-scanner.
  2. Click on the ESET Online Scanner button.

  3. Check the box by "Yes, I accept the Terms of Use" and Click the Start Button.
  4. Allow the program to run if prompted by Windows User Account Control.
  5. The default setting is to remove found threats. The following Advanced settings are available:

    • Select the type of applications scanned
    • Select the target drive(s) to be scanned
    • Use Customer Proxy Settings
    • Show a list of other installed Anti Virus software installed on system

  6. Once the desired settings have been made, Click on the Start Button.
  7. During the scan, threats that are found will be displayed.

  8. Once the scan is complete, there is the option to "Uninstall application on close" by placing a check in the box. This will require the files to be downloaded again the next time ESET Online Scanner is run.
  9. Click Finish.
