    Hi

    I need help in doing that virus scan on files first before i give stuff away on here?, i have searched the forum and can not find a tutorial on what needs to be done before uploading stuff to share?

    I have stumbled across a website that has a freebie section like blackhatworld but this site seems to get some unique software and seo stuff etc etc before anyone else, i just got lucky when i found this site

    so any help with how to do the virus scan thing before i get started uploading some good free items on here would be appreciated :)

    Use this website: https://www.virustotal.com/

    Once you have scanned your file then copy the url from your browser and paste it when you share your file :)

    Most anti-virus programs, once installed, allow you to right-click a target file to scan it for viruses...

    It looks like i will not be able to scan these videos with virustotal because they are bigger than 64mb

    I have the High traffic academy level 2 videos so if i scan them with my NOD32 antivirus i can just grab the report of the virus scan from nod32 and post it on here with the HTA level 2 videos?

    is that correct, that would be ok?

    uh ha!, that's the thread i've been looking for, cheers

    so i do not have to add a virustotal because the files are way bigger than 64MB, all i have to add is a "download at your own risk" message

    also what is the best upload site? that gives the most options and data?

    I have a paid subscription to mediafire account but i don't want it to risk ever getting it banned

    Download an anti-malware like malware bytes anti-malware and do a complete scan. Or scan with an online virus scanner like Eset online.

    When a scanner of some kind is installed you can probably just right-click a file on your computer and select an option 'scan with....'

    Just use virustotal and upload the file it will scan it and give a free report. It will also give you a link to the report you
    can share with everyone.
