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.

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

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.
