Which ".exe" file do I use when an application asks for Virus Scan info?

Hello,

I'm trying to set up a messenger application that allows for file transfer. In the preferences section, it asks for the Virus Scan info. My problem is that I don't know which .exe file to point it to. Can anyone help?

Thanks.

VirusScan version: 13.15

Build: 13.15.113

Hello,

It would be any messenger app, or any other app for that matter, such as the ZIP app I use, which allows me to designate whether I want to use anti-virus.

No router at home, but router at the office. So both..... can you explain why that would matter?

Thanks for any assistance you can provide.

We have been asked this many times.  Tell it to use mcods.exe which is the on-demand scanner.

Located in C:\Program Files\McAfee\VirusScan\mcods.exe

Alter the C: to whatever drive letter is applicable if this is a non-standard installation such as multi-boot etc.
