I need the full CMD ESET command to detect and clean all malware

Recommended Posts

I'm working on a family members computer that was infected with malware. Since Windows 10 keeps crashing when I attempt to do the ESET security software malware/PUPS/viruses scan, I went into Windows 10 safe mode with command prompt. Yet the ESET command I had found online to scan for all malicious programs, that command appears to only be for scanning. The code I found and used is:

"c:\Program Files\ESET\ESET Security\ecls.exe" /auto

I then found this ESET webpage https://support.eset.com/en/kb3417-eset-command-line-scanner-parameters-eclsexe-5x-and-later

Which shows various commands to add to have ESET do varying functions.

Since I need to have the ESET software scan for all types of malware, viruses, and just everything. Do I then use they additional commands:

/memory    for the memory scan

/bootsscan   for boot sectors scan

/archscan       archives scan

/adwarescan    to scan for types of Adware



/clean-mode=MODE strict     with this also to have it thoroughly clean or delete the malware, viruses, etc


And if I have all of that is correct, would the command that I input be the follow:

"c:\Program Files\ESET\ESET Security\ecls.exe" /auto /memory /bootsscan /archscan /adwarescan /unsafe /suspicious /clean-mode=MODE strict


My goal is to fully clean my family members computer of all malicious, potentially malicious, and suspicious programs. So that their computer will work properly, normally and stop crashing.


Please let me know if the command line I typed above is correct, or if it needs to be altered, and if so what needs to be changed and added.

Thank you!
