    The send-to version form this tutorial is the closest match we have right now.

    Is the shell entry of Security Essentials somewhere in the registry (of for example Win7) located?
    Just to see what it uses and, if possible, to add to Defender.

    This is just a thought but might be impossible because the SE scan uses the GUI and as we seen, Defender manual entry's scans use the command line. They are lookalikes in the interface but deep inside probably not.
    Hello Hopachi,

    Yeah, I've looked at that option, and it just wouldn't work with Windows Defender in W8.

    Thank you for confirming that.
    That's good to know.

    I'll use the option in the tutorial further.

    Thanks Brink. It works great. I didn't have the option to unblock, but it still works. I have learned so much here in such a short time. They won't let me give you any more Reps until I spread some around.
