How to manually scan completed downloads in Mozilla with Macafee total protection.

Hello, I discovered you can use Mozilla Firefox to manually scan a completed download.  Unfortunatally I have no idea where the location of the anti virus program is in Macafee Total Protection (exe?).  And also after that step if anyone knows the Arguments I need to have for it to work right.  Right now I have tried these settings:

Anti Virus Program Location is:

C:\Program Files\McAfee\MQC\QcConsol.exe

and for the Arguments I have this:

%1 /autoscan /nosplash /autoexit /prompt /noestimate /allole /applynvp /archive /priority 1

I usually see a red target in my task pannel when macafee is scanning my system, but when I use these settings it seems like it is not working.

Oh and by the way I found these paths from another website.  It was not total protection they were giving the settings for but for a corporate version I think.  If anyone knows the official anti virus location and arguments for macafee total protection I would buy you a beer .

Re: How to manually scan completed downloads in Mozilla with Macafee total protection.

They are scanned behind the scene as you download in any case so why bother doing it manually?

That path  C:\Program Files\McAfee\MQC\QcConsol.exe is not VirusScan but Quickclean which is merely a utility included with some McAfee suites used to do the basic Windows cleanup jobs..

You can always simply right-click the downloaded folder and select "Scan".
