    Nice... Also - I submitted a report to Clam this morning, and will update this thread, once I hear back.

    It's not that bad.... your system was probably not fast enough to run it.

    Does ClamWin use the same engine as the clamd on our UT? I had this running on our XP machines and it quarantined inituser.exe and several other legit files rendering the login screen borken. I took clamwin off all of our machines and went to MSE instead.

    I just noticed that this happened to me yesterday. Virus Blocker stopped two updates from Microsoft. I'm not sure why it thinks those particular updates are viruses. Interestingly, it was my PC that was trying to download them and I don't know why. I don't recall downloading any Windows updates yesterday, but I might have.

    Ah, it happened to someone else's PC during an update, too. I suppose I'll just add download.windowsupdate.com to the pass list.

    EDIT: Ooops. There is no pass list for Virus Blocker. lol So, I'm not sure what to do.

    Good move on the switch to MSE... Works very nicely in my experience. I use Clam for on-demand file scanning. There are probably users on this forum that don't trust MSE because it's 1) not considered a heavy-weight AV software and 2) it's from Microsoft... I would actually enjoy hearing from those people and considering any good reason they can muster for why not to use MSE.

    I used to use Avast! at home. I've switched to MSE at home and at work. It's light-weight and works great.
