    I would like to write a batch file to put into Scheduled Tasks, which would launch the MSE scan (full scan), then shut down the system after completion. I cannot find a separate exe file for the scan portion of MSE. Does one exist, or is it just a routine within the program? Suggestions? Is there another way of accomplishing this, without my intervention?

    Something like this:
    c:\..................Whatever scan command is
    c:\Windows\system32\shutdown.exe -s -f -t 00

    To just run a full scan from command prompt: "c:\Program Files\Microsoft Security Client\mpcmdrun" -scan -2 Issue "c:\Program Files\Microsoft Security Client\mpcmdrun" /? for more options.
