Windows 7: Run Malwarebytes in a batch script!

09 Apr 2019   #11

Windows 7 x64, Vista x64, 8.1 smartphone

Pah! I meant del *.lnk didn't I?

If a shortcut is not showing up in %userprofile%\desktop, then had you looked in \Public\Public Desktop\*.lnk?


Here you are Paul. Ive completed the Bat file to search specified directory for files. The output of the Directory search is placed on the input of the FIND command, which finds all strings except one labelled "MyBatFile". The output of this command is redirected to a text file called output.txt. TYPE output.txt is then used to go through each file listing. The output from this command is output to another FIND command. This FIND command finds all listings except the directory name. The results are then redirected to out2.txt. TYPE Out2.txt is then the command to be processed in a FOR loop. The variable of the FOR loop is used to specify what file name is to be deleted. After these commands have been executed, a final command is used to DEL all .lnk shortcuts from the Public Desktop folder.

dir %USERPROFILE%\desktop\*.* /b /s | find /v "MyBatchFile.bat" > output.txt
type output.txt | find /v "single folder" > out2.txt
REM type out2.txt
REM pause
FOR /f %%G IN ('TYPE out2.txt') DO del /P %%G
REM pause
del /P "c:\Users\Public Desktop\*.lnk"
REM pause
Hope that Helps!!
