Help
I have recently started to get the following report when updating the database. I have re-installed ClamWin but the message persists. Any ideas what I have to do to remedy things?
Thanks.

It looks like the database is corrupted somehow. Delete the main and daily and bytecode files in your ClamWin database directory and then do a database update. ClamWin Preferences, File Locations will show where the DB directory is located on your computer if you can't find it.

Just to say many thanks - did as you suggested and that seems to have fixed things.
Great stuff.
