When i upload a file, i want to automatically scan the file with antivirus.How can I do that?

Well, thats more of an OS specific thing. I can think of two ways to do it (on Unix or NT):
1) Make all uploads go into one directory. Then set up a 'cron' or 'at' job to scan the directory once an hour / day etc.
2) In your script that handles the upload, issue a system command to run your virus checker on the new file. It prolly wont be to interactive, but maybe you can set up logging.
Are you on Unix or NT?
