Hello ClamWin community,

1. What kinds of Malware does ClamWin detect? Also spyware and adware?
2. I think, that ClamWin and ClamTray need much memory (while this programs are in idle mode). What is the reason for that?
I mean, ClamWin still hasn't an on-access-scanner at the moment...
3. An option, where the user can decide individually(interactive) , what to do, if ClamWin finds an infected file, whould be great!
4. What do you think about an information screen, where you can see, when you updated ClamWin and when you scanned your pc the last time (I know, that you can see it in the report file and the about box, but this would be a more direct way, to inform the user)?
5. Does ClamWin scan the bootsector?
6. What's about an heuristics and reperation-function?
7. An integrated quarantine would be great too.
8. A detection list could be useful too.
9. A function, that ClamWin could play back a sound file (on virus detection) would be cool.

Ok, that was all for now! Smile I know it's much, but maybe , there are some suggestive things, the ClamWin team can integrate in future versions.

Thanks for replies! And sry for my English! ^^

There is currently no development of ClamWin. The last version released was in March of last year. As you know, ClamWin depends upon the Clam Av for Linux project (from Cisco) for just about everything--scanning engine, signatures, and C++ source code. The ClamWin developers make a Windows port of the Clam AV Linux code, which is ClamWin (with an added GUI). Clam AV has had several releases since March, but the ClamWin developers have not prepared corresponding releases.

It is getting difficult for a free, open source antivirus to keep up with protection against malware, so we will see what happens with ClamWin this year. For best protection, you should be using a real-time antivirus (like Microsoft Windows Defender/Security Essentials) and keep ClamWin as a backup AV only.

Regards,
