I've installed ClamAV on XP.

There is no icone on the desktop, and nothing in start menu.

In the folder of ClamAV there are 7 exe-files:


clambc, clamconf, clamd, clamdscan, clamscan, freshclam and sigtool.


Whitch file shoud I use?

I am not quite sure where you downloaded it from, but this forum is intended for Immunet users. You can find an Immunet download here: http://download.immunet.com/push/immunet/ImmunetSetup.exe


It comes with the ClamAV engine which you are able to turn on/off from the Immunet interface general settings. No need to manually run any ClamAV files.

Hello Pod, if you're interested in just the ClamAV engine this link to the ClamAV's owners manual can be found here. https://github.com/vrtadmin/clamav-faq/raw/master/manual/clamdoc.pdf It's a PDF file so you'll need a program that can read this format. I'm sure you can find the info your seeking with this.


However what Lorne suggested is a good idea too! With Immunet you get the ClamAV engine completely intergrated with Immunet. This gives Immunet off-line scanning capabilties with the ClamAV engine enabled. Also with Immunet you get the ETHOS & SPERO cloud detection engines as well. ETHOS uses heuristic cloud detection methods to better detect unknown or as yet unseen threats. If you're looking for just a command-line scanner then ClamAV would be the way to go. Of course it's your choice.


Best wishes, Ritchie...

Expect lots of false positives with the ClamAV engine.

With Immunet, I'd stick with Spero and Ethos only.

Just my advice.
