VirusTotal – Scan that file via multiple virus checkers online

Virustotal is an online service that analyzes suspicious files and facilitates the quick detection of viruses, worms, trojans, and all kinds of malware detected by antivirus engines. It is a site I use frequently to check any files against viruses, worms, trojans and malware which I have received or any trial software versions I download from the Internet. 

To use: Simply head over to http://www.virustotal.com/ and upload your file and their service will provide an in-depth scan of the file against the latest leading virus scanners. To give you an idea of these, see the list below (list as at 11th October 2008):
