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.

Is Your AD Toolbox Looking More Like a Toybox?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

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.
