Sometimes, even an anti-virus application cannot detect malware, as the virus definition files for a new threat may not have become available. In such a case, one can use web services like VirusTotal to scan for suspicious files. X-Ray is a portable application that allows scanning suspicious files using 31 different anti-virus scanners. The scanners used for checking specified files include Avast, AVG, Avira, Bitdefender, ClamAV, Comodo, Symantec, etc.

To get started, drag and drop the respective file to X-Ray, and select the anti-virus services that you wish to scan the file with. Alternatively, click Send to VirusTotal.

Sending Files

You can also change the mechanism for getting information about the analyzed files, i.e., via email or by entering the VirusTotal API key. You can get your very own VirusTotal API key by signing up for a VirusTotal account. The key is available from the VirusTotal Inbox after you have activated your account.
