I believe sherpya once had ClamWin on github, but I do not know if that is still on there anymore. A user reported on here sometime ago that the sourcecode on the ClamWin homepage was outdated.

To my knowledge, RRK, there's nothing to speak of.

Sorry! It's not the glasses--it's the cataracts. I don't see anything as to ClamWin real-time until after Clam AV version 1.0. Perhaps Clam will finally give a nod to Windows users in 1.0 and make something for the Windows OS that is similar to the real-time function for Linux they presently have. On the other hand, I would like it just as much if incorporated a web blocker for bad web sites. If you can prevent access to malware, that is better than detecting it when it gets on your computer.

There already is a web blocker in ClamAV, but it looks like it was never added to ClamWin. ClamAV uses the Google filters, which is the same as to what Firefox and Chrome already have built into their web browsers., so really ClamAV could just take this out as it really isn't needed anymore.

ClamAV could just do a simple real-time protection that just scans on read and write and it should be good enough for average use. Later on, they can add onto it, like networking scanning and other things. Still, they need to make it run as a service first, otherwise it will be really slow and consume a lot of system resources.

Maybe if people here from ClamWin start sending emails and open bug tickets up at their Bugzilla page, it might help convince them to finally do that.

If they improve Clam AV too much, they may cut into usage of the other Sourcefire/Cisco security software, so I guess they can not improve it too much beyond protection of email servers. It's up to someone else to help on Windows.

Microsoft browser users have the Smartscreen web filter, so perhaps we Windows users are better protected against bad web sites than I thought. Some web filters are better than others, however.

As of Windows 8 and 10, the smartscreen can work on any browser, besides IE/Edge. It is actually in the OS now instead of just in the browsers.

There is no news, and no production has been started. What we need are one or two good programmers who will donate some time to the project. Otherwise, there will never be a real-time version of ClamWin with a specific orientation toward the Windows platform on which it is used.

Thanks for asking. Perhaps someone will steip up and help!
