I installed what I thought was the latest ClamWin version yesterday from this site, however I am seeing this:

WARNING: Your ClamAV installation is OUTDATED!
WARNING: Local version: 0.99.4 Recommended version: 0.101.2
DON'T PANIC! Read http://www.clamav.net/documents/upgrading-clamav
main.cvd is up to date (version: 58, sigs: 4566249, f-level: 60, builder: sigmgr)

Please advise - where is the version: 0.101.2 download please?

Thank you in advance.

The version available on the ClamWin web site here (version .99.4) is the latest version. The ClamWin developers port over to Windows the Linux scan code and virus signatures provided by the Clam AV project (from Cisco). The developers do not make many changes to the original Linux code except make it usable on our Windows computers. The outdated warning you get is regarding Clam AV, and it was not meant for ClamWin users. Just ignore it, as the developers have not yet updated ClamWin to the latest version available for Clam AV on Linux.

Thanks for using ClamWin! Keep in mind that it is an on-demand scanner, and that the developers recommend you use it as a backup scanner to a real-time AV for full protection.
