    I don't know how it was in previous versions of MSN but version 6.0 offers you an option to run on-demand scanner after a file has been downloaded. (Tools - Options - Messages - File transfer)

    @Marcos, is there an command line option, that automatically close NOD32V2 on demand scanner, when no infection in the downloaded file is found?! o_O

    I believe that would be:

    /quit+

    You need to have this also:

    /prompt


    So command line switches might look like this:

    /ah /list+ /scroll+ /arch+ /pack+ /all /prompt /quit+ /log=nod32_dload.log

    Sorry for assuming that was already in there.

    ok, thanks again NewNOD, but the scanner window will be still closed after finished the scan :(

    Is there no command line, that let the scanner window open, when an infection is detected and only close the scanner window automaticly when no infection is detected and all is clean??!

    thx

    bye

    Hmm. Well, here's what I get:

    1. With /quit+ only (no /prompt):

    A) When no infection found - Scanner window pops-up, scans, then
    auto-closes
    B) When infection found - Scanner window pops up, scans, then
    auto-closes

    2. With /prompt /quit+:

    A) When no infection found - Scanner window pops-up, scans, then
    auto-closes
    B) When infection found - Scanner window pops up, scans, then
    VIRUS ALERT pops up (for each item found in succession), Action
    is taken (for each item found in succession), THEN window auto-
    closes

    If you mean is there a switch that will make the window stay open after all actions against all infected items found have been taken, then I don't think there is one. Essentially, the prompt/ switch pauses the execution of the parameter /quit+, but once action is taken, the command switch /quit+ is executed. So, I'm not sure how you would get around that.

    I thought you just needed the window to stay open long enough to take action, then after that, closing would be welcomed.

    Sorry. Guess you need this: /IfInfectedPromptHoldOpenElseQuit :)

    What happens if, in NOD32 Setup/Advanced options you untick "Automatically close message windows"?

    That's how I have mine set up. I have a user-dir scan that starts whenever a user logs on, and auto-closes on completion. If a virus is found, the notification window stays until the user chooses an option from it.

    I have NOD32 email all alerts to myself as well. So if another user deals with an alert but doesn't tell me, I still get to know.

    Oops, sorry! Just re-read the above. What I suggested seems to have the same affect as /prompt and /quit+.

    Just ignore me. I'll get me coat :oops:
