Does anybody know how to set up Windows Live Messenger to use msseces.exe to scan a file?

Only parameter I found for msseces.exe so far is -hide (Run registry key)

I wonder what command the ShellExt uses to scan a file when one right clicks

Dragging & dropping the file onto the msseces.exe only launches the app, it will not scan it


The Shellextension uses mpcmdrun, see the posting one page before this.

that is the actual scanner, msseces is only a frontend to set options for the engine and in the registry. ( HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Microsoft Antimalware\ and all its subkeys )

Try this, it disables the Onecare option, which indicates Messenger to identify Mpcmdrun as the Onecare tool.. The help for Messenger says that if the option is greyed out, onecare is already installed. But because the names of executables and paths have changed from onecare to ms security, messenger doesn't find it automatically.

EDIT : the command that you have tried "msseces.exe -hide" would only hide the trayicon. Windows Defender on Vista has the -hide option in its autorun setting enabled, too - this leads to the behaviour that it only comes up when it is needed.

think of msseces.exe as the same "application" that Defender is. What matters really is the scanner and the malware-engine which are different from defender.

For you guys saying avast/avg/nod32 are the best products... make sure you do your research first http://www.av-comparatives.org/comparat ... main-tests

Retroactive Detection Rates
Avast 98.2%
AVG 93%
Nod32 97.6%
Avira 99.7%
OneCare 87.1%

Proactive detection rates
Avast 42%
AVG 45%
Nod32 56%
Avira 69%
OneCare 60%


For new virii OneCare was actually really good, with the highest detection rate and few false positives. For older virii, Norton did really good (fast scanning, few false positives, 98.7% detection rate). McAfee, Nod32, and Kaspersky all did good for older virii with few false positives, but average scanning speed.


Avira is my AV of choice.

I'm wondering how long it will take for someone to make a virus/trojan specifically targeting this
app, to disable it.
Had that happen to me in the past with commercial AVs.

Microsoft opened up the beta testing to the public today:

http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/

Follow the links, it will take you to connect where you fill out a short survey. I think the limit is the first 75,000 people.

I think it's worth mentioning that it appears that the beta offered via Connect is older than the leaked version a few weeks ago.

The build version from screenshots of the official beta is 1.0.1407.0. Meanwhile, the leaked version I have on my computer has a version of 1.0.2140.0.

The rest of the versions for the anti-malware client version, Engine Version, Anti-Virus Definitions and Anti-spyware Definitions are the same.
