If you mean DOS as pure DOS environement, I do not know. BUt if you want to run programs from a batch file using the command line is windows xp, many programs have such switches, but they are not always documented

open the program folder in command line mode and find the executable and check by adding a /? to it

for example

C:\Program Files\Lavasoft\Ad-Aware SE Personal

ad-aware.exe /?

will show you about 30 command line commands

Not knowing what you want to do, or which ones you have it is difficult to suggest more

i meant something that i could use froma batch file. It does not necessarily have to be a true DOS application. Even any anti spyware tool that supports coomand line switched would do just fine. In fact i was kinda looking for a an anti-virus scanner with switches too. i wanted both the application to be from the same company. That'd be great. I found a Mcafee Command line anti virus scanner but couldnt find a DOS anti spyeare scanner. hope someone could help me out here. I've been looking for a solution to this w=query of mine for about 8 months :-p Thanks, guys!

trendmicro's sysclean can be run with command line switches...but the better question is...why are you wanting to do this in this manner?

So i could schedule it using windows task scheduler

--or--

execute it from any other program since it's got command line switches.

http://www.safer-net.../en/faq/30.html spybot search and destroy has this list of command line switches for the executable...it'll do invisible mode and auto fix auto immunize auto update and all that jazz via the switches....it's also a very good program
