I have created a boot cd using BART PE and CLAMWIN. Both work great, however, I need to be able to store my preferences so that when I boot to the cd I do not have to go into preferences and change them. Are they stored in a specific place, and if so, can the file be stored away so that I can substitute it on the BART PE build? Thanks!

there is a clamwin bartpe plugin already:
http://oss.netfarm.it/winpe/plugins.php

It takes care of user preferences.

Also the instructions how to make standalone clamwin install may help:

Thank you both for your replies. The fact is that the plug in works wonderfully. Perhaps a more in depth explaination is in order:

I have a need to scan PC based medical devices for virus's before they are shipped to customers. I must scan every file on the hard disk(s). Bart PE and Sherpya's ClamWin plug in are the perfect solution EXCEPT that ClamWin, by default, excludes certain file types from the scan. I can boot to the BART PE CD, open ClamWin, and manually change the preferences so that no files are excluded. It seems like a small thing, but when you have to do 50 or more PC's at a time it can become tedious and time consuming. It has been my experience that when a task becomes overly tedious it seldom gets done, and it is very important that we do this.

I would like to be able to set the preferences in ClamWin so that no files are excluded before creating the CD. I have tried setting them on my PC then copying all of the appropriate files into the BART PE plugin folder, this did not work. Is there a file that I can modify and put in place to make sure that no files are excluded from the scan? If there is, where is it and how would I best be able to make sure it works in BART PE?

Thank you again.

yes you can

use the clamwin.conf file listed below as a guideline. You may need to alter the appropriate paths relative to your configuration.
Place the config file into ClamWin\bin folder and note standalone = 1 setting. Setting standalone=1 stops clamwin form using user's profile directories. The excludepatterns and includepatterns settings should be set to:
Code:

excludepatterns =
includepatterns =

clamwin.conf contents
Code:

[Schedule]
path = .\

[ClamAV]
clamscan = .\clamscan.exe
enablembox = 0
maxfiles = 500
infectedonly = 0
database = ..\db
includepatterns =
scanole2 = 1
excludepatterns =
maxsize = 10
scanarchives = 1
priority = Low
maxrecursion = 5
maxlogsize = 1
moveinfected = 0
debug = 0
logfile = ..\log\ClamScanLog.txt
scanrecursive = 1
freshclam = .\freshclam.exe
quarantinedir = ..\quarantine
removeinfected = 0

[UI]
reportinfected = 1
traynotify = 0
standalone = 1

[Updates]
dbupdatelogfile = ..\log\ClamUpdateLog.txt
enable = 1
dbmirror = database.clamav.net
updateonlogon = 0
frequency = Daily
weekday = 2
time = 12:00:00

[EmailAlerts]
enable = 0
from = clamwin@yourdomain
to = admin@yourdomain
smtppassword =
smtpuser =
smtphost =
smtpport = 25
subject = ClamWin Virus Alert

[Proxy]
