Right Click Scan for Viruses?


4 posts in this topic

Posted

Microsoft Security Essentials had a nice option (like most other Anti Virus products on the market) to right click a file and scan for viruses. However, now that it is built in to Windows Defender, this option has disappeared. I tried searching Google and found an option to scan a folder, but is there any way to get the option back to scan individual files for viruses? (Can't believe that Microsoft left this out!) :huh:

Can't help with your main question, but virustotal has a nice right click > send to > virustotal uploader, it scans with about 40 different antivirus scanners

That method only works for folders, not individual files. :(
