Possible to set up on individual machines, but we got SEPM to manage them from the server.  I really don't want to set up individual scans like that, but I do want to target c:\users and scan everyone's user folder on each computer when I want.

Already available. I'm guessing you want it that way for the admin on-demand scan? If so, those are configurable in the AV policy. You can pick which folders to scan. It would be nice if they separated the admin on-demand scans from AV policy though.

It's not availabe the way I want it.  I can't schedule a c:\users folders scan from the management side.  I have to log in on the individual machine and create it.  It works that way but it's a lot more work than just saying "scan c:\users on this machine" and then assigning that policy to a group of machines.

You're right. I made an assumption, based upon common sense, that when you select Custom folders and could edit the folders, that there would be a place to type in the name of the folder to scan. In this case, there are only selections for Documents, AppData and a few others. You can't edit any of them. Seriously?

Common sense would tell you that would be a good option to have...

Yes, I hope they can add that.  Scanning c:\users\*.* would be great.  And if they could scan just files in the c:\ that would be good too -- scan just c:\ files and not go into folders.  I found a virus sitting in c:\ a few times that the quick scans (on MSE) were missing.

I agree,  would be really useful to have that flexability with custom scans.
