Hello,

I am trying to make a powershell script to run clamscan to scan the whole system. I want the script to update the database and run the scan while giving me the results in a txt file. I would like to be able to use this script to set up a task in Windows Task Scheduler so I can run Scans automatically every week.

Thank You

We can't give you much help. Since version .95, ClamWin has not supported a lot of the command line.

You can set up a weekly ClamWin scan via the Tools, Preferences, Scheduled Scans, Add menu option. You don't need any script for that.

The Scans directly through the ClamWin require that the user be logged in when the scan happens from my understanding. I need to be able to have the scan run on the VM without anyone having to log on during the scan time.
