I have just downloaded clamav-0.98.3.tar.gz and i opened up a terminal and ran tar -zxvf clamav-0.98.3.tar.gz. So i now have a new directory called clamav-0.98.3

 

So how would i go about installing it?

 It doesn't look like a Windows file, based on the name.  What OS are you running?


Everyone with a computer should back his system up to an external hard drive regularly.  :thumbsup:

You install it like most Linux software that comes as source code, by running the following commands as root:

 

./configure

make

make install
