Background: When running many short scans loading the scan engine new at each start of a2cmd is inefficient. Using the /s or /service parameter makes the Anti-Malware service load the engine and keep it loaded for later scans. If the service is not yet started or installed it gets installed and started when the service parameter is run for the first time.

Must be used alone. Runs an online update of all software components and signatures. If a2cmd is used as a part of Emsisoft Anti-Malware, only the update function of Emsisoft Anti-Malware should be used.
