"t's free for a reason"

August 01, 2011  |  By windows7codecs-com

 |  Version: ClamAV for Windows (32-bit) 2.0.14.139

Pros

The application is free.

Cons

ClamAV has a long history of false positives eg. search google for "ClamAV false positive". The false positives have the effect of fooling end users into believing that the anti-virus application works well.

Summary

Very significant false positives from ClamAV include NSIS installers, Winamp player, Macromedia Flash, Macromedia Shockwave Player etc. etc. etc.
When false positives are reported to the developers for correction ClamAV is extremely slow to update. The ClamAV database is also distributed by other developers on other platforms, which in turn leads to an even larger base of false positives.
If you want something that is both reliable and won't hinder your experience on the web there are better applications out there, but they are not free.
