    If you just run 'clamscan' it'll only scan your current directory. You'll need to tell it where to scan:
    Code:
    clamscan -r /
    Or something similar. Remember to update your virus db via 'freshclam' first though.

    Red face Outstanding!

    I downloaded Clam after reading about it in a Linux magazine. Is there a way to keep it working while I am working? And... Please don't laugh at me... Is there any nice graphical interface for this program so that it can be more user friendly?

    Kind regards,

    What can be any easier than typing clamscan -r -v / to scan an entire system? Also, if you want to continue working, just minimize the shell. If you need pretty GUI's, perhaps you should use Windows. CLI is the only place to be.

    WHERE IN MY POST DID I SAY THAT I NEED PRETTY GUI'S????

    WHERE???


    GASP! One asks for a nice graphical interface and I am told to f$%^ myself. Yes, asking me to use Windows is just like that so show a little respect and don't use any opportunity to bash on another user just like this dear fellow Linux user. It doesn't embarrass me but yourself...

    Just like when I was learning to use yum to update Fedora: I had no problem with the terminal and I learned to use it proficiently but when I learned about yumex I was happy to use the little graphical front to update my Fedora Core... DOES THAT MEAN THAT I HAVE TO GO BACK TO WINDOWS?

    I did the scan of my files using Clamv with the console and I was able to do it easily...

    Were you so offended by my question? Why be a deuce at this forum like you were with me?
