    Which online virus scanners will actually remove viruses, not just identify them? Also, is there an online antispyware scanner that will remove spyware?

    I would assume you are looking for free services as well as online resources.

    Trendmicro is the best online free, AV scanner IMO

    I would also recommend Microsoft Windows Defender, and Webroot Spy Sweeper for spyware, but they both have to be downloaded.
