Check for last McAfee Virus Scan

The NAC appliance offers a way to check to make sure someone has updated their PC with the latest virus definitions. They do not however, have a way to check to see if someone has done a full scan of their PC withing the past X number of days.

Here is what I did:

Mcafee writes to a file called ondemandscanlog.txt.  this file is updated each time the user does a scan of their PC.

You can setup the clean access manager to check to make sure that file has been modified within the past x days, which will indicated that a scan has been performed.

The file is located at:

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\McAfee\DesktopProtection

on an XP machine

and on Vista computers, its here: c:\ProgramData\McAfee\DesktopProtection\ondemandscan.txt
