    Hi All,

    I've searched this, but most of the information I came up with was about 3 years old (or more): download manager

    One of these posts suggested the following, is this correct?
    If not, basically I'm using ESET Smart Security and Free Download Manager ( To get the download manager to perform a virus check I need to specify an executable path, command line arguments and an extensions list.

    Executable Path:
    I'm open to suggestions here. Pointing it to egui will (I assume) just bring up the GUI. Is 'ecls.exe' the one that I'm looking for?

    This is the one that I really need help with. All I know is it needs to start with: %file%
    As for the arguments and their sequence that follow this, I'm at a loss.

    By default it includes: exe com msi zip rar arj tar t?z bin cab doc
    Does anyone have a more complete list?

    Thanks for any help.

    The advice given in the post you quoted still holds true. There's no need to have FDM scan a download that ESS will scan anyways. In fact, having both of them scanning the download could cause more problems than it solves.
