If you want to run ASC Antivirus scan by using command, please run the followings commands in the ASC Antivirus installation folder (Usually: C:\Program Files\IObit\Advanced SystemCare with Antivirus 2012)



With one parameter: Command -parameter value (example: -path "c:\", this will scan C partition.)

could you kindly tell me what the command line would be for a deep scan repair and shutdown would be?

i want to use it in a daily task scheduler, but have been trying for over an hour now and can't figure it out properly.


so deep scan>repair>shutdown


if anyone could help me i would really be grateful.

Hi pantar2205, welcome to IObit Forum! :grin:


You should note that these are only valid for Virus/Malware scan and not other Deep Scan functions of ASC5.


I am not sure if these are the ones you want, but please check.


For example, the below command parameters will do the following actions:


A deep scan and detection of registries, cookies and processes. Find (if exists) suspicious, mail, compressed and packaged files, and quarantine them if found in volume C, then shutdown the PC.


That is:

Scan (all the defined items) => Repair (quarantine) and Shutdown


Boot partition scanning is excluded. (Needs restart for boot scanning.)


ascscan.exe -path "c:\" -inf1 9 -inf2 9 -sus1 9 -sus2 9 -reg 1 -ck 1 -prc 1 -pack 1 -mail 1 -arc 1 -deepscan 1 -shutdown
