clamsentinel is not made by me but by Andrea Russo, he reported me some time ago a problem with my updater when clamsentinel is active
but I had no much time to deal with the problem

if you get problems updating to latest version, try the full setup

I have installed the mini update and am pleased to say that the database update procedure works perfectly with the original libclamav.dll. However I am not using Clam Setinal.

Thanks, Sherpya, for all of your work on this which is much appreciated especially as Clamwin appears to be the only AV program still supporting Windows 98.

Thanks sherpya

Clam Sentinel was off when I updated. I will upload the full setup next night (I'm on dial-up Embarassed ).

I also had a corrupted download the first time, maybe it was the source of my problems.

I'll tell you the outcome tomorrow, if you don't mind. What Fred says goes for me too, thanks for all the efforts.

P.S.- Downloaded the full setup clamwin-0.96.2.1-setup.exe, had it checked for viruses (we never know), uninstalled completely Clam Sentinel and Clamwin older version, rebooted and cleaned register, installed the new version.

Uploading virus definition OK, scanning memory OK, opening menus OK.

Re-installed Clam sentinel and everything OK.

In short; back to normal.

Thanks again sherpya Very Happy Exclamation Exclamation Exclamation

- uninstall clamwin
- cleanup clamwin program file directory
- download and install latest version (0.96.2.1)
- try to update

if it does not work, your problem is different, please post the error from the report log

by pressing stop, you should able to save a partial report (perhaps unfortunately I doubt it will contain something interesting)

Just as others have mentioned, I also am a new user who just installed ClamWin v. 0.96.2.1 on an old Windows 98SE machine and who cannot get the program to download the virus database update. A window opens saying that it is downloading, but it just hangs there forever. If I stop it and generate an error report, it says:

ClamAV update process started at Fri Sep 03 14:11:49 2010



--------------------------------------

Cancelled

--------------------------------------


Is there a manual way to download the virus database update to the machine and update it locally?

Thanks much.

The Clam daily signature database is up to 12194, so you are way behind! That shouldn't matter however--it should still update. They do seem to be having sdome problems though--they had to manually push through my sigs from last night.
