Hi,

I must have a virus on my system that is afrade of ClamWin.

- closes browser window (IE and FF) when I go to clamwin.com or the forums. I could download it from sourceforge.

- tries to stop clamwin to install , but since clamwin installer asks for confirmation when one tries to close it in the middle of instaltion, I managed to install calmwin and saying No so many times.

- Closes clamwin when I open it to scan my harddrive. I tried to setup a scheduled scan but clamwin is complaining that the Virus database is missing!!

What is your suggestion?

Thanks in advance

You need to download the virus database, open clamwin and go to Tools menu

I wish I could ! This viruse closes ClamWin as soon as I open it. It doesnt let me download the database. Look at the log I posted.

I have removed the hard drive and Im now scaning it by another computer.

You can download the database manually from the web.

Good, that will (probably) solve your problem.
