Unless you are having an Internet connectivity issue, which sometimes happens with computer infections.
These are good tools to have ready to use at home.
I have a packed computer and it took two hours, I think an on-line scan would take a lot longer.
Although I only use Microsoft Security Essentials I think it doesn't hurt to have a third-party scanner check as well.
One can do Microsoft's scan as well, before going to bed, but as I mentioned, one needs more than one tool available.
Just like we can't expect to repair a computer if we only have one at home, you need to be able to download tools and get information from web searches if one isn't working.
