    Hi! May somebody tell me how to make a scan form the WinRar toolbar?
    I remember that, this is a default feature of Nod32 V 2.7.39 and I'm almost sure that the file called to do that is ekrn.exe.
    I tried unsuccessfully to do the same thing with ess v 3.

    I think this is a very important feature.
    Another could be a "system shutdown" tool at the end of a scan-on-demand.

    Thanks!

    Yes it is a good method but I can't read the result even though I create the scan.cmd file with the parameter wrote in because I can associate only .exe file.

    PS: I'm on Vista Ultimate

    In the "Scan archive for viruses" dialog box, click browse, and from the "Files of type" drop down box (at the bottom), select "All files" instead of "*.exe".

    Then you should be able to select scan.cmd or any non .exe file.
