ZenTree will become famous soon enough

If you check out the scans they use, they all have CLI interface afaik. You could write something like this in about... 20 minutes for a command line interface (allowing for googling of CLI options and testing). (I know because I did) Some of those scans take FOREVER (I'm looking at you CLAM).

Whilst this may appear to save time by just one click, you're going to wait the best part of a day on some machines for some scans that aren't great. Maybe for a double check scan left overnight to make sure nothing residual but, IMO, nothing more.

A better option, from what I can tell from the description and screenshots, would be TN's Eureka's UVK. Similar idea with, what looks like, better execution.

And CLAM is crap; utter crap. The only reason I can see it getting any love is "at least it's one more opinion" but it's detection rates are abysmal with some non-AVs getting better results.

onkyo is an unknown quantity at this point

Miss Post, who would have thought, with 19 different tabs open, one would get confused.
