BullGuard – A Free Online Malware Detection
BullGuard Virus Scan – a new cloud based antivirus tool – certainly doesn’t disappoint in this regard. The free web service is designed to perform a brief scan of your computer to detect malware, which is a good start before commencing a thorough troubleshooting process, in order to save time.
The service makes use of a specially designed plugin that’s automatically installed to your web browser, so you may run the scan at any time with just a single click. Almost all major web browsers including Firefox, Chrome and Internet Explorer are supported by BullGuard. Better still, you can always try it on any other web browser to find whether it works for you or not. Getting started with BullGuard Virus Scan is fairly easy; you just need to visit the webpage via the link provided at the end of this article and click ‘Start Scan’.
BullGuard then automatically detects and installs the appropriate extension/add-on for your web browser. For instance, if you use Google Chrome, you’ll be prompted to install the appropriate extension for it – simply click the Add button when prompted to install it. BullGuard then begins its scan on your PC, analyzing key system areas of your computer such as system files and folders, and showing its progress in a bar so you may keep a tab on the scan process, which is generally quite fast.
Once the scan is completed, BullGuard shows you the results. It should be noted that BullGuard doesn’t really remove any viruses or malware it finds, but merely detects their presence on your machine. On the bright side, you can click the ‘Download Free’ button after the scan to download 60-day free trial of BullGuard Internet Security 2013 suite to remove any threats found, or simply use an alternative antivirus solution for the purpose.
