Windows 7: Run schedule MS Essentials from sleep mode?

If you open MSE from the system tray what does it state is the last scan date?

if it shows the time that you ran the batch file then all is working, the update not needed is due i assume to the fact that you have the latest update already loaded.

If you have your defaults set in the MSE application to update definitions before scan then there is no need to add the signatureupdate parameter as this is as you say automatically included

As for the actual task I would enter a single line of code rather than use a batch file (just enter "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Security Essentials\MpCmdRun.exe -Scan -2", set to Highest credentials and trigger at the time you wish with wake the computer to perform this task set also

It does actually appear to have scanned, but the program didn't appear to have started.

Another problem is that the PC will not stay away while the scan is scanning, shouldn't the actual program open properly?

How do I do this ^^^ and will it stop the PC from going back to sleep?

The command line program does not invoke the GUI control centre, but you should be able to see it running in the task manager.

As for the PC not staying awake there is a timer setting in the registry that sets how long a system will stay awake without any user action before resuming sleep, this may be set to short in your system. I have looked fro this but cannot find it at the moment, will post back if and when I can find it

Where is the .exe file located so that I can use it to create a schedule? And when you say that the prgram should be visible in the task manager the only thing that is visible is the .exe file, is that what your talking about?

The EXE is at "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Security Essentials" so this can be set as the run in folder in the task and the "-Scan -2" as parameters.

As for the task manager the Exe is the entry that will show

I have looked in the MS Essentials folder and there is no exe file there.

That is strange - it's there on all the systems I've checked that run MSE - Maybe you would be best re-installing MSE and checking again It may have been deleted for some reason

Have attached a copy from the latest version of MSE though a re-install would be better
