I updated my existing clamwin to 88.4 and now I have two clamwin's in my systray, which are both 88.4 and both doing updates and scans.

My Add/Remove control panel applet only shows the one install for 88.4.

Do I just exit one of them and then try to find where it's coming in? I don't see clamwin in my "startup" folder.

check HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run and HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run registry keys. You probably installed a previous version for yourself only (and clamwin used HKEY_CURRENT_USER key) and then upgraded to install for all users (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE key)

You were right, I'd originally installed it to use "all user" accounts and then installed this update to only use "my account", so that caused two entries to be executed from same sub-directory for clamwin.

Thought that was happening, just couldn't remember the registry keys. Thanks again for the help.
