I had used AVG 6 using the recomended paramters as sugested, and I used to get a message that the file was scaned.

However using the same paramters with AVG 7 I get a DOS screen flash and disapear, I can not tell if the downloaded file was scaned and if it was safe. Do you know if I`m using the correct settings for AVG 7 to report about the scaned dowloaded files.

Please advise.

C:\Program Files\Grisoft\AVG Free\avgscan.exe %1 /param1 /param2

Normal
"C:\Program Files\Grisoft\AVG Free\avgw.exe" /SE

or

When the virus is not detected, it quits.
"C:\Program Files\Grisoft\AVG Free\avgw.exe" /SE /quit

Thank you for the advice, I used the comand "C:\Program Files\Grisoft\AVG Free\avgw.exe /SE"

Which at first glance apears to have woked however it is not scanning the objects.

On closser inspection of the scan results I get the message "Cannot open not scanned".

You have to add %1 at the end, or it will not scan your download:
"C:\Program Files\Grisoft\AVG Free\avgw.exe" /SE %1
