Tricky little subject. Alex, I use Zone Alarms and Malware Bytes to
check everything I download before I open it. I periodically run Emisoft
and Pavark, and occasionally Live One Care Scanner - Protection
(only)(Microsoft) which is the one that finally got the MereWorm off my
laptop.Both Malware Bytes andd ZoneAlarms integrate into the right click
context menu and both have an on line lookup that goes to their
database. The problem, as others have suggested, is that the people who
do these malicious acts have become very clever - often naming their
crap with the .exe of a legitimate program. The kind of sites others
have mentioned will show a percentage which say a particular file is
infected and a percentage will not. When you run the scans, exclude
false positives on files you have had for years and know are safe.
Quarantining doesn't hurt anything because the file can be restored
latter if you find it to be safe. As for imaging, I assume you mean a
"cloned" backup. I do that, but the danger is that if you don't know
exactly when you got the virus, spyware, whatever, you may be
reinstalling it.

Hope this helps.
Jay
