You folks are waaay over my head. All I know is that 88.1 will not download updates at all on my WinME system. I eagerly await you fixed version.

Thanks for the fast response.

Yes, I unzipped that file into clamwin's bin folder. No joy -- it didn't solve the problem. I am back to running 0.88, which works just fine.

The newer non-cygwin worked ok for me, alch (thanks much!)

Not sure why the newer files didn't work for bellgamin; did you note the instructions above?
0.88 was upgraded due to a security issue, so 0.88.1 definitely is indicated....

I tried again from scratch. Uninstalled 0.88 then did a clean install of 0.88.1, following which I unzipped feshclam-0.88.1.1.zip into clamwin's bin. But the updater just sat there, numb. No joy whatsoever. (sob) Crying or Very sad

Ergo, I did a rollback to 0.88. It still runs fine, & so have all prior versions.

If 0.88 has "security issues" should I not use it at all? Shocked

No error message. It just stayed on the update page, with *no action* -- I waited a full 30 minutes before giving up.

Hola, mon -- you are a flaming genius! It works!

May you have -
Walls for the wind
And a roof for the rain,
And drinks beside the fire.

Laughter to cheer you
And those you love near you,
And all that your heart may desire

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
shalom... bellgamin

cool. Could you tell me what database mirror do you have in clamwin.conf and do you have any proxy configured. Better yet paste your c:\windows\application data\.clamwin\clamwin.conf file here in a whole

I do not use any Proxy. Here are the data you asked me for...

[ClamAV]
clamscan=C:\Program Files\aaSecuritySW\ClamWin\bin\clamscan.exe
freshclam=C:\Program Files\aaSecuritySW\ClamWin\bin\freshclam.exe
database=C:\WINDOWS\All Users\.clamwin\db
quarantinedir=C:\WINDOWS\All Users\.clamwin\quarantine
logfile=C:\WINDOWS\All Users\.clamwin\log\ClamScanLog.txt

[Updates]
dbupdatelogfile=C:\WINDOWS\All Users\.clamwin\log\ClamUpdateLog.txt
time=20:58:00
~~~~~~~~~

Again... THANKS for your help and for this superb AV. Mahalo nui loa.

Duhhh... I have no idea what you are talking about. Shocked

Maybe you want the URL my updater points to --- database.clamav.net

Or maybe you want a read-out from db files at .clamwin\db\. If so, it's mostly non-text but here are the first few lines...

If what you want isn't shown above, tell me a file to check or a GUI tab to check & I shall do so ASAP. Else ....... Che cosa conosco? Confused

Just a small contribution from Portugal: I had the same problem as secretclam and the others, with Win98SE. It was solved by installing the feshclam-0.88.1.1.zip patch provided by alch. Thank you all.
Providing a link in the main site would be fine. There are still a lot of us using Win98 around here, and maybe some haven't found this forum yet!
