and Photoshop don't work.
Dreamweaver give the infamous "This action cannot be completed because the other program is busy. Choose 'Switch To' to activate the busy program and correct the problem." Acrobat and Photoshop do not load fully and Windows Explorer either does not find files to display (constantly shows the flashlight) or opens without the top "blue" bar then won't change to any other directory.
Everything was working fine earlier today. Came back to machine (again) "clamwin has updated" message was displayed and everything I mentioned was not working as described. It's not the first time happens every day only way to correct is to reboot then all works well until clamwin automatically updates. Can't tell if a forced update causes failure because I never have an out of date database.

You might try uninstalling ClamWin and then reinstalling it and see if that helps. If it doesn't, please get back here.

I am almost certain that clamwin is not responsible for the problem you describe. I suggest to reboot your computer and if the problem is still there then uninstall clamwin and see if that fixes it.

Uninstalled, Reinstalled, Uninstalled, Reinstalled......
More than once
I have to reboot the computer to get Dreamweaver and Windows (not Internet) Explorer to work.
IF no ClamWin then there's no problem with the above mentioned programs.
The "server busy" error is not unusual for Dreamweaver - lots of programs seem to cause it BUT I'm not using any of them.
The Windows Explorer problem is new since ClamWin.
I removed ClamWin & totally purged (as best I could) but when I came back to it the problem returned.
At first I thought it had to do with the iMac on the network but ruled that out by leaving it off for a while.

Okay, unless Clamwin leaves a virus scanner behind after it's uninstalled it's not the culprit.
Sorry but it was the only one I knew I was using. Found out today Firefox 3 has something built into it so now I'll check it out.
Thanks for the help folks,
