    I am trying to configure a computer that uses statusbar firefox plugin to work with Antivir scanner. I can't seem to get it working, any help would be appreciated. Found this here but not of that worked.

    Thanks WSFuser, I think I was missing a damn 1 in those parameters for Download Statusbar and that's why it didn't wanna work for me but I checked it out now with a Eicar test virus and it worked fine. Now I can't get the same results using Flashget though, hmm....

    Is it possible to use free AntiVIr from command line and what are switches for "repair/delete" + max heuristic?

    I still can't figure out the command parameters for Flashget to work properly. Also does anyone know what to add to the script to make it only scan the file in hand and not the whole boot, registry, and memory stuff?

    Hi,

    you can download the Avira AntiVir command line scanner from this side:
    http://www.avira.com/en/support/support_downloads.html

    Put the files in your AntiVir PersonalEdition Premium directory.
    Just use avcls /? for the list of different parameters.

    The available command line options are limited by your license type.
    Which means with AntiVir Personal Free some functions are disabled.

    Cheers

    Hi,
    I'm not sure if this would work.

    This works well for me with Free Download Manager and should work with anything.

    C:\Program Files\AntiVir PersonalEdition Premium\avscan.exe

    Arguments - /GUIMODE=2 /PATH=%file%

    Extensions - exe com msi zip rar arj tar t?z bin cab doc

    This will scan and automatically close if nothing is found. If you want to manually close the scan screen I believe you change the 2 into a 1 in Arguments.

    C:\Program Files\AntiVir PersonalEdition Premium\avscan.exe

    Arguments - /GUIMODE=2 /PATH=%file%

    These on Flashget still don't work. I am testing with eicar test virus and it doesn't pick them up.

    Hi dja2k

    Flashget default Scanning File Types are:
    .ZIP;.EXE;.DO?;.XL?;.COM;.BIN;.GZ;.Z;.TAR;.ARJ;.LZH;.SIT;.HQX;.TGZ;.DLL;.OCX;.VBX

    You might need to add .TXT to the FG list including the ( ; ). Have you tried to download a zip or .exe file? Does the scan work then?

    edit- Flashget detects it with/without the .TXT for me. Got a link? Perhaps it is a setting in AntiVir?
    edit 2 - I see you are using Classic. I'm using pro. So if you used C:\Program Files\AntiVir PersonalEdition Premium\avscan.exe it will not work. Find the "avscan.exe" in the Classic and see how that goes.

    Oh I can get it to scan but it doesn't find the viruses, I don't know why, but the settings inside Antivir are correct because it works fine with Firefox's Download StatusBar and detects them fine. The command /GUIMODE=2 /PATH="%1 also scans in Flashget but doesn't detect viruses. This is what I have in the settings right now.

    Hi,

    did you try to put everything in the first line, like:
    C:\Program Files\AntiVir PersonalEdition Premium\avscan.exe /GUIMODE=2 /PATH="%FILE%"

    And leave the Parameter box empty.

    Cheers

    I am using the free Antivir not premium, but sorry to say that putting everything in the first line and leaving the parameter blank still doesn't detect anything. Either way, the scan happens and all but it just doesn't pick them up, I don't understand why though.

    Does anyone know why every manual scan like I stated above via FF Download Statusbar, Avira scan says "scanning registry" but takes a bit long in scanning C:\WINDOWS\explorer.exe all the time and I think also C:\WINDOWS\system32\smss.exe. Can't there be a way to just scan the file at hand and nothing else. This is the latest Avira Antivir Personal Free Edition. I am using the /GUIMODE=2 /PATH="%1 for AVScan.exe parameter.

    dja2k,

    Have you resolved your situation? I just saw this post by Alan while seeing what is new with the latest FDM beta.
    I don't know if this is acceptable to you as I do not think there will be any indication of "Safe" downloaded files being scanned by AntiVir.:doubt: I kinda like the idea though... no popups unless there is a warning from AntiVir as the file is being written to disk.
