CAVS 126.96.36.199 sees the reintroduction of the command line version of CAVS.
The command line version is invoked by typing “cavscons X:*.Z”, where “X” is the drive to be checked and “Z” is the extension to be checked. For example, to check all files on drive C:, the command line command would be “cavscons c:*.*”
The command line scanner can be run directly from removable media by the following steps;
- Make a new folder (I called mine CAVS)
- From the “c:\program files\comodo\comodo antivirus” folder copy CAVSCONS.EXE to the CAVS folder.
- From the “c:\program files\comodo\comodo antivirus” folder copy the sub-folder CAVBASES to the CAVS folder
- Copy the CAVS folder to your removable media
- Process complete.
Using CAVS 188.8.131.52 as the source, you should end up with 154 files, totalling 3,983,083 bytes - around 3.75 MB.
Scan speed is between 9 and 13 files per second, on a reasonably idle system. This speed is more than comparable to other anti virus’ command line utilities.
Very handy for troubleshooting a system with wobbly Windows.
Hope this helps,
