The VirusTotal Uploader adds an entry to your right-click Send To menu that automatically uploads a file to online virus scanner VirusTotal, which scans the file for viruses using 39 different antivirus applications.
If VirusTotal sounds familiar, it’s probably because we recommended using it to find out if a file really has a virus. Of course the whole process of heading to the VirusTotal homepage, browsing for the file on your hard drive, then waiting for the upload to complete is a little tedious. With the VirusTotal Uploader, scanning that file with nearly 40 antivirus engines requires just two clicks (right-click the file in question, then select Send To -> VirusTotal).
If you’re keen on the idea behind VirusTotal, you can also use it to scan email attachments before downloading them by simply forwarding the email to
email@example.com. VirusTotal Uploader is a free download, Windows only.
