    Default Command Line Utility for Microsoft Security Essentials

    hi !



    http://www.thewindowsclub.com/comman...ials#more-4344

    there is something wrong with the commandline: "“%ProgramFiles%\Microsoft Security Essentials\MpCmdRun.exe” –signatureupdate".

    has anyone managed to fx. update the files using the "Command Line Utility for Microsoft Security Essentials" ?

    update: it works if you are running as ADMIN, but not as USER / USER with an "elevated" cmd-prompt....

    update 2: now it works even as a USER, i tried both update & scan, weird...

    can someone else test it please ?

    I had tried it and it worked simply with an elevated cmd.
