Make sure you are running the latest version of ClamWin--0.90.1.1.

There are several signature databases now--a monthly database and several types of daily databases. The regular downloaded update takes care of all of them. The instructions for a manual update might not be current. I believe one of the daily updates is composed of MD5 signatures. If ClamWin refuses to scan, it's probably because it's missing the database(s). I'm not sure what to tell you to do if you can't access the Web to do the signature updates.

I guess you could have someone with Web access update their computer and then copy the database files to your machine. For a Win XP machine, the signature databases on on your computer at C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\.clamwin\db. There is a subfolder for the several daily databases.
