[QUOTE=Subsonic;1014205]That was it! I re-upgraded to version 2 beta and did a search for MpCmdRun.exe. Its default path in x64 is C:\Program Files\Microsoft Security Client\AntiMalware\. I re-wrote my script, re-compiled into a screensaver and it now works fine. Sometimes we need to be prodded to take that one more step! THANKS!

Rep added!

i looked at your system specs, you are running W7-64.
maybe itīs somewhere else on a 64-bit system ?

anyway, do a search for it....
now iīm confused, isnīt that the SAME path i posted above... ?
where did you look for it ?
is it located somewhere else in v1 ?

that screensaver-script sounds interesting, could you please post it ?
but, i suggest you create a new thread.

thanks for the rep. !

In version 1 MY default install path was: C:\Program Files\Microsoft Security Essentials\

Here is the script:

@echo off
"c:\program files\microsoft security client\Antimalware\MPCMDRUN.EXE" -Scan -1
D:\Utility\aquarium.scr /s
rundll32.exe user32.dll,LockWorkStation
exit

I then compiled the .bat to a .exe and changed the .exe extension to .scr

Works great!

interesting, i normally donīt use a screensaver because iīve had some interference on a scanner (radio),
whenever i turn off the screen.
yes, i know itīs weird....

but now the interfence is gone, so i was thinking about starting using a screensaver, and the idea of doing a scan when the system is idle isnīt bad.

i saw something similar somewhere, could have been yesterday, someone using a screensaver-script for some antivirus, could have been MSE.

I actually looked in C:\Microsoft Security Client\ I just needed to look down one more subdirectory (\antimalware) to find it!

I had found an MSE screensaver here:

Automatically Scan Your PC With Microsoft Security Essentials When System Is Idle

but had a problem with it. The only way I could run this on either of my x64 machines was to completely turn off UAC. I didn't like that so I set out and created my own. I have a utility that converts .bat or .cmd files to .exe's. All you have to do is change the exe extension to .scr and you have a screensaver! Works well now and I can keep my UAC on.
