Assuming you are using McAfee home products just right-click the file/folder or drive and select Scan. Normally downloads are scanned anyway behind the scenes automatically if VirusScan is at default settings.
Manual scans using this method don't cause Security Center to open immediately but it will once finished. All you'll see is an extra taskbar icon. Hover over it for a progress report.
This method can also be used to scan in Safe Mode but the Security Center wont open in that mode.
Laurie - it just dawned on me what you are asking. mcods.exe is the process. McAfee On-Demand Scanner.
It's in your Program Files\McAfee\VirusScan
:)Thanks for that, have found it and installed. Will see what happens when I download something next time.
