X-Ray: Freeware to Automatically Submit Suspicious Files to Antivirus Companies for Free Scan

Almost all Windows users install a free or paid antivirus program in their system for security purposes. But no antivirus program is perfect and if a new virus or spyware is developed, the antivirus program can't detect it until its virus definition is updated to identify it.

Apart from antivirus programs, people also use online virus scanners like VirusTotal, etc to scan a suspicious file. You can get more information about these free online virus scanners in following article:
