VirusTotalScanner Portable is a desktop variant of the well-known sine that can be used to scan files without needing an antivirus installed on the computer. The utility does not require users to have too advanced knowledge when it comes to apps so that anyone can use it. However, unlike other applications of the same kind, this one is only designed to scan one file at a time so users need to specify the path towards it in order to scan the process.
The tool has a simple interface that mainly replicates the one of the website. Moreover, it does not have to be installed on the PC as it is a portable app. Thus, users can deploy it from a USB flash drive whenever they need to scan a certain file and they can allow the app to work with the VirusTotal database in order to perform this process. It takes seconds to receive the results and users can see a detailed report, just as the ones provided on the website. More than 40 different antivirus tools are used at the same time in order to detect any issue that a file might have.
