Security company BullGuard has a solution for all the computer users out there who suspect their machines have been infected by malware: a free, ultrafast, online virus scanner called BullGuard Virus Scan.

BullGuard, company launched in 2002 that offers award winning backup software solutions and easy to use products that deliver complete protection, has recently announced the launch of a free online virus scanner that detects security problems at ultrafast speeds. If you think your PC is infected, go give BullGuard Virus Scan a try. In very, very little time, it will finish scanning your PC and tell you if it found any viruses, malware, or spyware on the PC.

To get started with BullGuard Virus Scan you do not have to install a standalone application on your PC. You see, the virus scanner works within your browser – any browser will do. Just go to 'virus-scan.bullguard.com' and click on the Start Scan button.



BullGuard will then detect your browser and will prompt you to allow the installation of the appropriate extension or add-on. If you’re a Chrome user, you will be prompted to add the BullGuard extension; if you’re a Firefox user, you will be prompted to install the BullGuard add-on. If you’re an Internet Explorer user, you will be invited to install the BullGuard add-on. You get the idea.

Once the extension or add-on is in place, BullGuard Virus Scan will immediately go to work.

It will scan your system.



And then it will present you with a report and invite you to get BullGuard Internet Security 2013 (60-day free trial).



Please note that BullGuard Virus Scan will not remove malware from your machine. It will only scan it and detect malware.

You can rescan your PC at any time by clicking the BullGuard icon from the upper right hand corner in your browser. And you can uninstall BullGuard Virus Scan by right clicking it. At least that’s how it is with Firefox and Chrome. There was no icon in the upper right hand side in Internet Explorer.

“We recognise that maintaining system security is often a painful process and that many consumers don’t have the time or inclination to constantly monitor their software,” says BullGuard Head of Product Management, Alex Balan. “We know how important it is to ensure that security suites are capable of protecting against the latest threats, so we developed BullGuard Virus Scan with this in mind. Whether users have noticed suspicious activity on their PC or simply want to double-check their current internet security software, BullGuard Virus Scan will provide a summary of a system’s security status in less than a minute, offering significant peace of mind.”
