Free online virus scan

Im not sure if I'm the only one who does not have a retail version of a virus protection program, but what I do know is that system security is a very big issue these days. Whether its a trojan horse or an annoying system file failure I pretty much receive a system pop up alerting me of a problem everyday. Although I don't think my system is completely vulnerable as I use F-Secure Anti-Virus Client and a few other small freeware products. What I do find though is that when I do a search for viruses all I can seem to do is rename the file, and not repair or remove them. For those who are in a similar situation I suggest trying out Trend Micro Free online virus scan, found here http://housecall.trendmicro.com/housecall/start_corp.asp
I find its the best thing to combat viruses without reaching for your wallet.

ah if only computers were like young children, by being dirty and unhygenic you build up your immune system, so a computer could have lax security in order to get a few bugs, it would then fight them off with some sort of artifical immune system and then build up resistance to those sorts of viruses :p one can only dream ;)
