I AM A NEW USER AND DURING MY FIRST SCAN I RECEIVED THE MESSAGE IN MY REPORT AS FOLLOWS:

C:\Documents and Settings\Joe\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\czgzok56.default\Cache\00796B9Ad01: ClamAV-Test-File FOUND

DOES THIS INDICATE THAT A VIRUS WAS ACTUALLY FOUND IN THIS FILE? ALSO IF A VIRUS IS FOUND DOES CLAMWIN AUTOMATICALLY REMOVE/QUARANTINE THE FILE, OR IS THERE SOMETHING I MUST DO TO ELIMINATE IT FROM MY COMPUTER.

THANKS

It says "ClamAV-Test-File" so it's nothing to worry about.

If a virus were found, it would not say "ClamAV-Test-File". Instead it would display the name of the virus.

In ClamWin Preferences you can choose if you wan't your files only to be listed, to be quarantined or to be removed. I don't recommend you to choose "Remove" if you don't know what you are doing.
