On-demand scans

Applies To: Forefront Client Security

Client Security lets you immediately start a malware scan and an SSA scan on client computers. You can specify whether the malware scan is a quick scan or a full scan. You can start immediate scans on all Client Security client computers, or you can specify an individual client computer.

You can initiate scans of client computers by using the Scan Now button on the Client Security dashboard. Client Security doesn't support a command-line method of initiating on-demand scans.
