Any SOFTWARE that can DETECT MALICIOUS VIRUSES before downloading a file?

I am really having a serious issue when it comes to downloading files from site to desktop.

My computer became a trash every time I downloaded the photos, software's or plug-ins because viruses were really attached to some files that I have already downloaded. Is there any applications or devices that could warn me first before I download the file to check whether it has a malicious virus or none?

I really need your help.

The most important elucidation is to make certain that you have an anti-virus, spyware and firewall installed in your central processing unit. Do not download a file prior to scanning it first. Your computer should presage you once it detects any virus.

If you are too afraid to have your computer scan the viruses, there are also different sites that allow you to test the URL. They are able to detect if there is a malicious virus in any file you are to download. Virus total is one of them.

In a scenario where your computer is already infected, you call for a Microsoft Malicious Software Removal Tool. It helps eradicate viruses that are already in operation in your computer. However, it’s limited to computers using Windows 7, vista, XP, server 2003 & 2008. Commit to memory that this tool needs to go hand in hand with an antivirus as it’s not an antivirus by itself.
