Avira AntiVir Command-line Scanner: http://dl.antivir.de/down/windows/antivir_avcls_en.zip
We offer Avira AntiVir Command-line Scanner so that you can use AntiVir at the command prompt in order to scan your files faster. You need to download the archive and extract avcls.exe in an empty directory on your hard disk. In the same directory, you should copy your license file and extract all files from the fusebundle archive. http://dl.antivir.de/down/vdf/ivdf_fusebundle_nt_en.zip
For more information, please see the ReadMe file included in the product package.

from http://www.avira.com/en/support/support_downloads.html

How to ?

It’sz not that hard.

Download the command line scanner from avira and put it in your antivir directory. In WindowsLive Messenger go Extra->Options->File-transfers. scan your recieved files for virusses with the commandline scanner.

Point messenger to the command line scanner location.

in my case this was:

“C:\Program Files\Avira\AntiVir PersonalEdition Classic\avcls.exe” -s

put -s behind it. This is the commandline command to scan a file.

Now WLM will scan any incoming file with av and stop whinning about dangerous files.

[edit: it doesn't stop whinning, it just scans]
