I guess you have installed:
Clamav: anti-virus utility for Unix - command-line interface
Clamav-freshclam: anti-virus utility for Unix - virus database update utility

You will need to install "clamtk" . ClamTk is a GUI front-end for ClamAV.
http://clamtk.sourceforge.net/index.html

So open Synaptic - Write "clamtk" in the search box, and install it.

Thanks pablitofuerte, that solved my question.
