I have a 14 mb setup file that I would like to have scanned for a virus before I execute it.

Is there a free online service where I can upload it and have it tested?

If you have a hotmail account you can send it to yourself in hotmail. It gets scanned there and it's free. You may not even have to send it.. I think they scan it when you upload it but I might be mistaken on that.

You can send up to 20mb files.

Try ESET online scanner.  I don't believe they have a file size limit as it loads an application into your browser to do the scan.

Good luck!
