CommandLine Scanner

Hi! I've bought a license of McAfee Internet Security and I've completely installed the McAfee Internet Security.
I want to scan some files and folders using ScheduledTask but i cant find where the command line scanner is.

In some topic i saw the VCLS tool for that purpose but i can't download that.

Help me please!Smiley Wink
