Emsisoft Commandline Scanner is a security-oriented software solution that was designed for advanced computer users that prefer a more heads-on approach to malware scanning and malicious component removal.
Unless you provide it with Administrator rights, this application won't run as intended, meaning that you won't be able to view or access its functions in the meantime.
However, simply right-clicking it and selecting the "Run as Administrator" option won't do the trick. You actually have to launch a Command Prompt instance with Admin rights and manually run the app from there.
As its name subtly says, Emsisoft Commandline Scanner doesn't have a traditional GUI, but provides you with a Command Line Interface (CLI) instead. Although this might be inconvenient for novices, users that have at least medium CMD operating skills should have no difficulty in understanding and using its features.
If you want to familiarize yourself with its functions even more, you can do so by assigning the "/?" or "/help" argument when executing the app. This will show you a list of its features and brief their brief descriptions.
You can try this application if you're in need of a malware scanner that can perform various checks and also remove or quarantine identified items without hassle.
It is possible to choose from various scan types such as quick, file, malware, rootkit, memory, traces, pup, archive, mail archive, NTFS and cloud scans. You can also run the scan via a Windows service and keep the engine active.
Detected items can be placed into quarantine, removed from quarantine and permanently deleted if you're sure that you won't need them any longer.
All in all, if you fancy a malware scanner that can be operated via CMD and provides you with multiple scan types, Emsisoft Commandline Scanner might be what you've been looking for.
