Hello,
Please, if it's not too much hassle, add an option to disable ClamTray.exe (that is, from loading at startup).

Thanks for ClamWin!

PS. BTW, the new design of the site is very nice!

ClamTray is an essential intergated component of clamwin. It is responsible for running update and scanning schedules, balloon reporting etc. Disabling it will do more harm then good.

That's why I asked for an option (maybe under an "Advanced" tab). I personally don't need it, and have to disable it manually every time after upgrading. I do not do scans often, and I update the database when I want to do a scan. If ClamTray used less RAM, maybe I would leave it, but 17MB seems too much to me.
