VirusTotal Upload Tool and Email Service

.VirusTotal is a free online virus scanner with 32 antivirus engines.

Additionally VirusTotal has created a file uploader that makes the whole process easy.

The 80 Kilobyte application installs itself in the right click context menu as a Send To entry which means that you can right click a file on your computer and select Send To > VirusTotal which will send it to their website to scan the file.

A browser window will open displaying the scan results when finished.

  2. Attach the file to be scanned. Such file must not exceed 10 MB in size. If the attached file is larger, the system will reject it automatically.
  3. You will receive an email with a report of the file analysis.
