Ahh so is it difficult? Or out of the scope of what the Task Scheduler is capable of?
I haven't toyed much with task scheduler things like this, but to hide the command prompt from coming up when you run a batch file it's something like:
start "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Security Client\MpCmdRun.exe" -SignatureUpdate
(put those 3 lines in a text file, save it as MSEUpdate.bat instead of .txt wherever you want)
I guess you could also just throw that .bat file anywhere you want and set Task Scheduler to run it on boot!
There's also an argument that automatically runs a quick or full scan. You can make a task check for updates a minute after bootup, then run a quick scan 5 minutes after that? Seems like a good approach. Edited by Stealth Pyros - 10/25/12 at 12:34pm
