I rebooted and installed "ClamAV for Windows". I have a couple of questions:
1. Unless I missed it, the UI only allows scanning stuff in RAM, not files
on hard-disks. If this is correct, does it mean users are expected to also
install ClamWin to scan hard-disks?
2. Based on the input above, ClamAV is apparently aimed at scanning e-mail
attachments. Does it mean it's not as good as proprietary AV solutions for
generally finding malware, wherever it lives (not sure why it would make a
difference, apart from the fact that an attachement-focused AV solution
wouldn't look at eg. the Registry)?
