ClamWin has detected a virus and put it in the ClamWin quarantine folder. The folder is located on your hard drive at the following location: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\.clamwin\quarantine.

You could go to the folder and delete the file(s) that are there. Just to be sure, however, you could upload a copy of that file to The AV Comparatives Web site (http://www.av-comparatives.org\) and have it checked for a virus by more than 10 other antivirus software programs, and you will get a report while online--sometimes it takes a little waiting time. If the other antivirus programs find a virus in the file, it is probably the real thing, and you should delete the file in quarantine on your hard drive. If no other antivirus programs find a virus in the file, it is probably a false positive, and you should send the file to the ClamAV people so they can make an adjustment in their scanning.

Yes-I see now that it was from a ClamWin dump. Not to worry. I'd still call it a false positive.

yes, dump files are now encrypted so they won't trigger a false positive
