Shut down PC after scan

I'm wondering if there is an option to shutdown PC after scheduled scan completes.
I schedule my On-Demand scan using VirusScan Console VSE 8.7i.

Unfortunately it does not start exactly time I scheduled ... sometime later (likely depending on something) and it takes about an hour  to scan. I could run shutdown batch file after 2-3 hours from scan start but would be know if McAfee provide that option somewhere in configuration.

I didn't find it ...

Hi Susja,

Nice to see speak to you again.

At the moment VSE does not have that functionality. You can do 2 things

1) Submit a PER (product enhacement request)

2) Check a new product McAfee deep command

Best regards,

TThanks for reply.

ACtually I solved my problem by finding the way to run scan from batch (command line) and putting shutdown at the end.
