Since ClamWin is not like the average anti-virus and has no user decision on what to do with each malware detected, so why not have an option to delete files in quarantine automatically after a set duration (like 5 days or 30 days etc).

The user does have the capability to decide to quarantine, remove, or report, and if user decides to quarantine, at that time ClamWin could set up a chron job to delete the file at some interval. I personally think 1-4 weeks is long enough to keep a piece of malware around. Some might want to delete it immediately.

What I meant by user decision is there is no pop-up notifications on each malware, like you see in other engines today, to tell you what you want to do. You only have an option to tell it to do one thing at a time. It's not a bad thing, but I think there should be an option to automatically delete the quarantine after some time and let the user decide the length.
