  1. Thanks so much for your reply. 

    That worked perfectly and testing of your product has resumed. White list testing has been successful.

    Last phase is testing with bitlocker to go encryption.  Enterprise policy is that all external storage devices are registered, and encrypted. I have been testing on an exempt test environment system now I move to live system testing. This means every system techs visit for remedial response will require the device to be encrypted.

    Are there any known issues with running from an encrypted USB stick?


    Thanks very much do appreciate your time in responding.

  2. Good day,

    I have been testing products for use as a remedial tool to be used for targeted scans. We have McAfee , along with Avecto Defendpoint through ePO as our corporate standard for endpoint security. As part of our endpoint security response, when we have identified a end point as requiring such activity, we are looking for a product for making targeted scans for remediation. Enter EEK Pro.

    I have been testing various products , and so far EEK seems like the right tool for our needs. We have nearly 12,000 end points and we need a tool at each major location for our Service Desk team.  EEK's command line scanner is the perfect tool for our needs, I have been working to create the perfect batch file to run the scanner with a preset command line switches for our needs and ease of use for our technicians.  The only issue I have had is with the "whitelist" feature.  



    /wl=[path], /whitelist=[path]

    Uses the specified whitelist file for excluding certain files, folders or malware names in the scan. Whitelist files must be text files where each line is one of the items to be excluded.
    Example: a2cmd /f="c:\" /wl="c:\whitelist.txt"

    I have been creating our own, as we have a lot of in house scripting and SCCM that sets off many false positives, but this is not the issue, it is the fact I am seemingly unable to whitelist by file name.  If I add directories (and we have a few) they are skipped by the scan, as expected, but adding individual file names however does not. We would like to whitelist our in house files, not always entire directories for obvious reasons.

    Is there special formatting to be used when whitelisting files over directories?

    Any assistance would be great, this is the last hurdle for me to be able to make the final recommendation, as I believe EEK Pro is exactly what we need. I would be adding my batch file, and whitelist to each stick before shipping it to each of 13 sites for use.

    Thanks very much for your time,
