Scheduled scanning should not be dependent on manual scanning setting
While doing setting of "scheduled scanning" I came to know that it depends on "manual scanning" setting to tell which types of files to scan. Also the exclusion list is taken from "manual scanning".
Same exclusion list is used for both manual and scheduled scanning. Suppose I don't want to schedule scan drive. So I would put it in exclusion list. But if with this setting I try to do manual scan files in drive then what will happen is all the files of drive will be excluded from manual scan. Or else I have to remove drive from exclusion list every time I want to scan files in drive. Then again put drive in exclusion list so that schedule scan don't scan drive.
This is quite cumbersome . So I request a separate setting for scheduled scan rather than just using manual scan setting.
With FSAV you should be able to scan however and whatever you want. Add PsExec(from sysinternals) and it can run as Local System Account like a scheduled scan does .
FSAV supports multiple paths and takes these parameters:
/ALL Do a dumb scan of all files.
/APPEND Append to existing report file.
/ARCHIVE Scan inside .ZIP, .ARJ and .LZH files.
/BEEP Beep when a virus is found.
/DELETE Delete infected files.
/DISINF Disinfect whenever possible.
/EXT= List of file extensions to be used in the scan
/HARD Scan the hard disk(s).
/HELP Display this list.
/LIST List all checked files.
/NOBOOT Do not scan boot sectors.
/POLICY Read scanning parameters from the policy.
/QUAR Quarantine infected files.
/RENAME Rename infected COM/EXE files.
/REPORT= Send the output to a file.
/ROOTKIT Scan system for rootkits.
/SILENT No output.
/SPYWARE Scan the specified path for spyware
/SYSTEM Scan the computer for active viruses
/USEACCOUNT Always use the command-line scanner's account for scanning.
/VERSION Show scanner version information.
