Most things detected by ClamWin (clamp??) are not actual viruses, they're more trojans. The typical definition of a virus is one that infects other files, which clamav has some handling, but it isn't exhaustive. If you have samples of these "viruses" you could submit them to www.virustotal.com and see if clamav detects them. They appear to be the typical mass mailing worm, not really file infectors, so clamwin wouldn't have any problems detecting and removing these if signatures are available in the database.

Sorry , Embarassed yep, is clam, well, i don't have any sample of this virus, but I try to get some samples to send to the clamwin database, because it is a very annoying virus!!!
like this very popular in the network of my university, it investigates a lot of this virus:

http://www.enciclopediavirus.com/virus/vervirus.php?id=3393

if somebody can obtain a sample, this single one is one of so many versions.

Anyway, clamwin canĀ“t detect this viruses?

It appears that in a recent AV Comparatives test, ClamWin did better against worms and macro viruses than against trojans. See this link: http://www.av-comparatives.org/seiten/ergebnisse/2ndgrouptest.pdf. They used the same basic test set that they use for their test of the large antivirus programs, but the testing was confined to on-demand scanning for several smaller antivirus programs. I guess ClamWin didn't do too bad, considering it's essentially still in beta. It beat Sunbelt and Comodo.
