Easiest way to get MS Security Essentials to run for people who turn off their computers?

David asked:

All the employees at my work shutdown their Windows 7 computers (iMacs running BootCamp) when they leave work. This ends up with people having MS Security Essentials say their computer is at risk, due to not having been scanned recently.

Is there a way to not have MS Security Essentials say this? I’d like to be able to scan their computers daily or weekly, but not interrupt their work by slowing down their computers with a scan.

My answer:


Send a Wake-on-LAN a few minutes before the scheduled scan time.
