virus scaner

Asked by vcolo on 2007-06-08

When I open , I get the message:
Unable to view ClamAV's information file.
This will affect
how ClamTk views the number of viruses and version information.

When I try to scan, I get the message:
You do not appear to have virus definitions!

Running "freshclam -v" as root may fix the problem

When I try to log as root, i get a message saying its not allowed.

What do I have do to?

Try this in a terminal:

sudo freshclam -v
