Hello everyone. I was just testing ClamWin and I got a problem. When I right click on a file that I want to scan, it says "Unable to execute"
How can I fix it? My OS Windows 8.1 Pro x64 version 6.3.9600

This is the error:

This is the ShellExtView properties of ClamWin:

I'm guessing it's a sort of permission problem. I logged in to my local Administrator account, it scans with no problem by context menu.

You are using ClamWin Version .99.4, which is the latest one, so there is no problem there. Some other thoughts...
Can you scan other files besides this one? If you can, then there is a problem with this particular file. Also, copy the file to a folder in which that file is the only one there and then try to scan that folder. Let's see what happens.
You might see if you need to run ClamWin as an admin.
