I don't want to disable the usb drives - I just need a way to force the scan so that the user cannot cancel and then open the files.

Currently we use a monitoring tool for our computer NCentral.  I could not find a way through this to do so. But the AV is Security Manager AV Defender.

I've not had any dealings with that AV unfortunately. It may be worth opening a ticket with the creators to confirm with them.  I can't find a great deal of documentation for it.

My AV of choice is ESET Endpoint Security - I know this has the option for scanning.
