which makes me suspicious of its ability to be a useful av program or to do real time protection which is, in my view, essential for any antivirus protection program
Please note that ClamWin Free Antivirus does not include an on-access real-time scanner. You need to manually scan a file in order to detect a virus or spyware.
Maybe you are content with the protection such an av program as this offers? I decided against it
ClamWin Free Antivirus does not scan files automatically (that is when you access or open a file), you need to scan a suspicious file manually before opening it. Hence ClamWin does not offer fully automatic virus protection and does not integrate with Windows XP SP2 Security Centre.
This will change once the on-access scanning component is released and ClamWin team is working on it.

While it is an excellent virus "scanner" it does not provide "real-time"
Clam AntiVirus is an open source (GPL) anti-virus toolkit for UNIX,
designed especially for e-mail scanning on mail gateways.
Current systems: WHAT OS, BackTrack-raw, PCLinuxOS, Peppermint OS 6, Kali Linux
and a custom Linux From Scratch server hosting a bunch of top secret stuff.
