You should scan files on Virus Total to verify whether or not they contain a virus. They use more than 60 AVs to do a scan. If a couple of major AVs see an infection, it is probably true. Jotti is another good online scanning service, but they only have about 20 AVs to scan something. I wouldn't trust any other online scanners.

This is the result of a Jotti scan.

I can't read the graphic--it's too small. Anway, when I was working signatures at Clam AV and didn't want to execute a file that might contain malware, I relied upon these AVs to tell me of an infected file: Avira, Bitdefender, Eset, Kaspersky, and Sophos. If 2 of them saw an infection, I believed it. They all had their own scan engine and were widely used, including business. They are still like that.
