Argument to be enter in Free Download Manger for auto virus check by McAfee

I am using Free Download Manger(FDM) to download files from Torrent. For secure download, i want to use my McAfee Anti-virus Plus. On every download it should auto start the virus check for the downloaded file. Can i know what argument, i have to use in FDM to perform virus check.

I am currently using

"C:\Program Files\Common Files\Mcafee\SystemCore\mcshield.exe" anti-virus path

"%file% /autoscan /nosplash" for argument

"exe com msi zip rar arj tar t?z bin cab doc" for Extension. (please check attached file for more detail)

Its seems to be not working properly. Can you please give me the correct entry for these?
