    I'm running Windows XP.  I'd like to schedule a TDS-3 full system scan to run, say, every other night at 2am.  Is anyone familiar with how to do this?  When I click on 'add a new task', I can select TDS-3 but if I've already got it running minimized, I doubt that will invoke a full scan, maybe it'll do the startup scan, but that's about it.  I"d like to scan everything, including all logical drives.

    Any ideas?

    Add the following parameter: -scand C:\
    I have not seen one for a full system scan.  With luck someone else has and will jump in.

    Since a full system scan takes about 45 minutes on my pc, it would be nice to have the task manager run it in the small hours of the morning.

    I was glad to see the -scand C:\ paramter, so I can at least get the c drive scanned, but if there isn't some way to allow the FSS to be done by task manager, it would be a good idea to have it added to the program.

    It should be able to do via a SS3 script as well but i wonder......... yes, vaguely think it's possible:
    need a script that will launch a full system scan, and have it set as the autostart script. Then have task scheduler launch TDS at the desired time.
    If only was known a command for that FSS to start with, for then also an exe could do it voice commanded if we want.
