Hello everybody!
I am new with this anti virus.
A couple of days ago I decided to install this antivirus on my computer running windows 7 and I have the problem it doesn't get the updates.
This is what appears on the update dialog:

Can't connect to port 80 of host database.clamav.net (IP: 127.0.0.1)
WARNING: getpatch: Can't download daily-9463.cdiff from database.clamav.net


Could somebody help me?

Thanks[/img]

ClamWin hasn't yet been designed/tested on Windows 7, which is a Windows beta at the moment. I"ve heard Win7 should ship in October, but I haven't heard what the ClamWin developers have in mind for Windows 7.

Regards,

Clamwin works fine on Windows 7. The warning you saw is not related to an operating system used but a status of the particular mirror used. Nothing to worry about as it would have downloaded the full daily.cld file instead of an incremental patch.

just noticed this :
database.clamav.net (IP: 127.0.0.1)

Looks like you have a mandatory proxy server?

or maybe the dns is blocking some address by aliasing them to localhost
also check for your host file in C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc -> hosts (open with notepad)

it should only contains (except lines starting with #)

something like:
Code:

127.0.0.1       localhost
::1             localhost
