I would not worry about those errors--they are probably errors denoting other filetypes that the Clam AV engine was unable to scan. Remember that the Clam AV engine is really designed for Linux. Some Windows files were/are probably not considered by Clam AV.

Thanks for your reply but I don't think it's ok to just dismiss something that says ERROR!
If what you say is true and it should be ignored then why count it as an error in the first place?

Errors are like a notification. For example, ClamAV doesn't scan a extension, so thus, it notifies you (error message) about how it didn't scan that file.

The point is that it didn't show what file it had a problem with. the only thing it showed were the ones that it couldn't open, NOT the ones it classed as errors.

Isn't there a version of Office for other OSes besides Windows?


There is LibreOffice and OpenOffice, but those are not the same as Microsoft Office and they use their own filetypes.


@Sirius200: It could be that maybe the counter is just off or perhaps there are errors it's not showing, I do not know. Feel free to file a bug report at ClamAV's bugzilla and see what they say about it: https://bugzilla.clamav.net/
