    Hi
    ClamAV is a CLI application... It needs to be configured to update,
    see the man pages (clamd, clamscan). If your running kde, look at
    installing Klamav as well it's the GUI front-end.

    if you are running a stand alone desktop for yourself, you do NOT
    need any anti-virus software.

    on the other hand, if you are running a mail server for a network
    which includes Windows[tm] machines ClamAV is a nice to have feature
    to help the Windows[tm] user not self-infect each other via email
    through your server..

    i've used Linux for years and never had any anti-virus software, and
    never had a virus.

    sure, if running a personal machine and you want to help the
    Windows[tm] by not forwarding a virus, then go ahead and spend YOUR
    time and electrons helping them with their frail software..

    You can also ask you friend to use decent antivirus software on windows, which is nearly an impossible thing not to have one on windows.
