For the last several months I have not been able to get Clamwin 99.4 with win 7 to finish scanning. I get on average 30 errors listed then clamwin will stop. Clamwin is also taking longer than 24 hours to do a full scan whereas before the stoppage it could do the same scan in a couple of hours.

Hmmm. Twenty four hours is waaaaaay too long for a scan. You might try a reinstall of ClamWin to see if that helps. Other than that, I don't know what to tell you right now. If it doesn't help, we will probably need to see a scan report.

Be sure to use a real-time AV along with ClamWin. You need good protection even if ClamWin isn't doing a good job.

Let us know how it goes.

The file in question appears to not be scanned due to permission denied. It appears to be a valid Windows system file, so I wouldn't worry about it. You could whitelist/exclude it from ClamWin's scans.

As for the false positives, you could upload one of them to Virus Total. If the Clam AV scan engine used by ClamWin is the only Av detecting it, Virus Total will send Clam Av a copy of the file so they can correct their signature.

Clam Av isn't too quick about correcting false positives. No one works on it full-time, as their efforts are primarily devoted to Cisco's money making projects. You know, at one time Cisco was using Clam Av on hundreds of computers, and they never gave a dime to the Clam Av project. Now they own it...
