Everytime I do an update, the report says, "LibClamAV Error: Database Directory:.\.\.\Data\db not locked". What should I do? I have ClamWin Portable v.90.

the locking part is a new feature added by clamav team, I've not tested with this kind of configuration, can you tell me how to reproduce it?

I received the error when I first installed the program yesterday. Then, I tried to do another update and received the same error. I clicked on TOOLS, DOWNLOAD VIRUS DATABASE UPDATE, and this is what I got just now:
