    What are the online virus and malware scanners that still support XP?

    The web page shows the download for Windows 10/8.1/8/7. I am unable to get at the version for XP
    BTW is this the only one available for XP?

    I believe when you click on one time scan, the download is only 7.8mb since the others are 8.15 eset must detect xp and then provide the appropriate download, I have not run an eset scan before, and I do not know of any others but you can do a search for online one time scans for xp and see what comes up, :)

    This is what is great about this forum. Everyone is pitching in with some support. Never heard of this before but that is only informative about my ignorance :D Thank you for this one! Even though it is not 'online'.
