 Online Tools List :

 HouseCall :

             Trend Micro’s HouseCall has been around for years and has earned an excellent reputation. It’s available in a 32-bit version for XP and in both 32-bit and 64-bit versions for Vista, Win7, and Win8.

 ESET’s Online Scanner :

                              is another tool with a long pedigree and a well-deserved reputation for excellence. It’s not particularly fast, but it is nicely configurable. For example, the scanner’s Advanced settings let you select which drives to scan — even remote networked drives. It will also scan inside archives (e.g., .zip files), which not all scanners can do. You can select the depth of the scan, such as looking for potentially unwanted and/or unsafe applications.

ESET’s scanner runs on all current versions of Windows (XP through Win 8) and comes in both 32- and 64-bit flavors. Unlike its competitors, it’s also available in two versions based on your choice of browser. If you download Online Scanner via Internet Explorer, you’ll get an in-browser, ActiveX version. Downloading the scanner with another browser (e.g., Chrome or Firefox) installs a non-ActiveX version that runs outside the browser. Both versions work identically

Live CD :

F-Secure’s Rescue CD :

                   is at the other end of the usability spectrum. It’s a Linux-based tool with a minimalistic, DOS-style text interface (see Figure 6). It’s not point-and-click; you navigate with arrow-key and keystroke entries.

              Rescue CD contains Knoppix (a derivative of Linux), an operating system that runs completely from the CD and allows access to your computer's Windows operating system and hard disks.

Note: the Rescue CD cannot scan encrypted disks.
