    I am using the command line options to scan emails but it doesnt appear to be very effective. I used GFI's automated risk http://www.gfi.com/emailsecuritytest/

    It only blocked a few emails. The ones with .hta attachments came through.

    I used /scanmbr- /scanboot- /scanmem- /arch+ /mailbox+ /all /quit+

    Should I be using additional switches?

    Thank you

    I'm very doubtful the hta files contained Scano, Tivso or another worm spreading in hta files so apparently NOD32 didn't detect anything. NOD32 is not a behavior blocker, it's an antivirus.

    Fair enough and good point. I just figured that the GFI tests had a virus signature to them but now that you mention it, Im sure it was just testing security flaws.

    Should I add any switches though to my command line parameters?

    Thanks
