on-line trojan scanner

My system feels like it is running slow and I would like to check for Trojans and general malware.
Anyone got any good suggestions?
Any comments on True Sword?

Which security software do you have aqt the moment?

  PvG 13:04 03 Aug 2007

Hi Tullie
AVG 7.5
Sygate Firewall
Windows Firewall.
Regularly scan with AdAware and Spybot.
Don't really visit "naughty" sites and don't get emails with unknown attachments.

Try a scan with a-squared free click here and/or Spyware Terminator click here and/or AVG Anti-Spyware free click here.

If you`re using XP you could also try Advanced Windows Care click here, there is a personal version that is free and quite good.

Sorry forgot.

You could visit Trend Micro and do a scan with Housecall click here as well if you feel it necessary.

And as above AVG Antispyware,

Hi PvG
Not a good idea to run two firewalls - this is very likely to slow down your system, or cause it to freeze
