Publisher's Description

ClamAV is an open source (GPL) antivirus engine designed for detecting Trojans, viruses, malware and other malicious threats. It is the de facto standard for mail gateway scanning. It provides a high performance mutli-threaded scanning daemon, command line utilities for on demand file scanning, and an intelligent tool for automatic signature updates. The core ClamAV library provides numerous file format detection mechanisms, file unpacking support, archive support, and multiple signature languages for detecting threats. The core ClamAV library is utilized in Immunet 3.0, powered by ClamAV, which is a fast, fully featured Desktop AV solution for Windows.

Worth dowloading as a backup check with other bloated Anti-Malware scanners. it's free too!.

Malwarebytes, NIS 2011, Super Anti-Spyware or Hitman found no malware in this application

I don't use anything but portable clamwin and it only runs when I tell it to. It must absolutely suck to be someone who actually needs av software always running. I suggest if that is the case to get a better fw.

Poor Detection but less resource usage

wow, NOD32 2.70 claims MULTIPLE infiltrations of this download?

It's great that it's free, but Avira AntiVir is lonely at the top in AV-land.

Uhhhhh......is that suppose to be a review for ClamAV or NOD32? I'm a bit tired of people who write a "review" by saying how much they love another product, that's not a review. If you don't like ClamAV, say so and why, if you love NOD32 so much, go write a review on that page. I think ClamAV is a great, free AV product. I keep the portable version on my thumbdrive and use it to check "strange" computers (ie. hotels, libraries, cafes, etc), before I use them.

I'm a bit tired of people who equate free with good. This isn't in the same league as NOD32. The fact that it's free changes nothing. I've tried just about every AV out there and NOD32 crushes the competition. Smaller footprint, greater frequency of updates, and built-in antispyware.

Good antivirus. There is also a version which runs in usb pen drives. So it is useful in order to check a lot of computers. It is slower than other anti-virus software, but is free. A year ago, I used it at the first time on GNU/Linux (this is the guide, I followed, to install it on "penguin" http://www.valent-blog.e...07/04/02/clam-antivirus/ ).
Virus signatures come quickly than other competitors, so it was love from the first byte :)

not a bad on demand scanner has a tendency to false positive a tad.example: i have uci chess engines on my pc, and clam av detected one as a threat,avast pro said otherwise,sent the same file to a friend for analysis running nod 32,same result no threat,these 2 av scanners nod and avast pro incorporate multiple level protection, spyware,malware and root kit detection,

Hi Gang,

For starters Betanews is posting the wrong version. This is a copy of the unix version that runs on Cygwin. There is a Windows native version at ClamWin.com. I'm not even going to review this illogical Cygwin version. What I am going to do is tell you why you shouldn't download this at Betanews and get it from ClamWin.com or http://SF.net/projects/clamwin.
*Free for businesses
*Downloads updates and scans on schedule
*Live protection for e-mail (Outlook, not inserted media)
*Was one of the very best scanners at the AV Comparitives

What it isn't:
Autoprotecting execution of programs and insertion of media
A fast/low resource scanner
A commercially available piece of bloatware that conflicts as much as it catches (Trend Micro, Norton, McAfee, Blink, etc..).

Cheers,
Christian Blackburn
