Winja should do the job. It's basically a client for VirusTotal but can also perform scans. It's quite cool

HerdProtect has been Beta since before 2014
There are no legacy lists that I can find
Most recent forum response was in 2014
No downloads available from the developer NOR Softpedia
Softpedia lists Portable + Local editions ... both result in : 404 - File or directory not found
Major Geeks have the installer but no portable version.

Feature "Scan and Remove" ...
-- Remove has never been available . . . in a perpetual state of "soon" and Beta

I have been tracking this app since 2014
Looks like it is a very slow expiration and death
DISCONTINUED is a very apt description

Tried to download this but the download button does not work. It says it is free but the only working link is the paypal donation link at the buttom. So much for free.
I don,t mind paying for something that works but not like this.

They seem to have added an explanation, of sorts:

"We are currently not distributing herdProtect at this time, if you would like to be placed on the waiting list, please email us at download@herdProtect.com. We are looking to re-release the software in the coming weeks".

Oh, and just saw this comment (scroll down at link) from 2013:

Exact same quote.

Is four years long enough to say discontinued? I think so.

Both posts are from 18th July2017. The 2013 date is when the responding guy joined the forum.
