Re: GetClean in CLI

Hi there,

Me too. I typed via psexec

GetClean.exe --silent --email=XXX@XXX.XXX --zippath="C:\TEMP" --proxy=proxy.XXXXX:xxxx --SCANPATH="C:\TEMP"

and I got

McAfee Labs(r) GetClean(tm) Version built on Dec 10 2017
Copyright (c) 2017 McAfee, Inc. All Rights Reserved.

Please set the Preferences before scan

Then I tried to put mail address and proxy in quotation marks.

Process started on remote machine but seems to be hung for 1hr now.

I just wonder if GRANT number switch was needed.

You need to open the tool for first time, fill all the preferences up. Save. Close. Then it is ready to be used through commnad line.
