ClamWin anti-virus

Continuing my testing of the ClamWin free AV as an alternative to AVG. After good results with Win 2K and Server 2003, I decided to convert my ThinkPad with Win XP Pro from AVG 8 to ClamWin.

The uninstall of AVG and install of ClamWin went well, with one exception - the Windows XP Security Center does not recognize ClamWin, so the red security icon appeared in the system tray to notify me that Windows could not find any anti-virus software. That can be set to ignore, but hopefully some day the ClamWin folks can provide a hook so Windows will recognize it.
