I just installed ClamWin in my computer and everything went well but when i'm looking at the emails in Outlook each time i click on a mesage with an attatchment my screen goes black and stay's like that for 2 or 3 seconds and then goes back to normal. Anybody have any ideas as how to overcome this?.

PS. Sorry for the bad english.

Yes, it goes back to normal, and also it doesn´t happen when you look at emails that doesn't have attatchments. So i'm pretty sure that it's something related with ClamWin.

If it's any help this are the characteristics of the computer:

Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 2.00GHz
RAM 256 MB
Video card: Intel(R) 82845G/GL Graphics Controller Intel(R) 82845G/GL Chip 64 MB Resolution: 800 x 600
Monitor: Samsung SyncMaster 2/2003 RGB color
OS: Microsoft Windows XP Professional
Microsoft Office XP Standard

I think this is the problem - wxPython library used in ClamWin is quirky on older graphic cards. You can deslect Outlook addin when installing clamwin, emails will not get scanned though.
