Is there a web service where you could upload your file and execute it on the remote system?

It would probably be setup as a virtual machine with its lifespan of a single session. It would be reverted back after you'd logout/disconnect. It would probably have to share it's desktop to display application's UI.

It would probably make certain things simpler (like virus testing, UI testing etc).

There are many VPS hosting providers that people use for things like this. No reason to use the web for it, you just pay a small fee for a remote host slice that you can do whatever with, like Slicehost.

Alternatively, many people use locally-hosted VMs.

VMs are probably the cheapest and best way to go, since you can always revert state if you infect thyself. – Robert Koritnik May 25 '10 at 14:42
