that wasn't exactly the fix that i was looking for but i used wget and wrote a batch file so that i could use a scheduled task to make sure that the virus def get updated at least once a day. Thanks!



Code:

wget http://database.clamav.net/main.cvd

move main.cvd "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\.clamwin\db"

wget http://database.clamav.net/daily.cvd

move daily.cvd "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\.clamwin\db"
