Re: A note to all xp users here.

Clamwin is poorly reviewed and it gets such poor ratings that I wouldn't bother unless there is no alternative.  Old versions of Avast still run in XP and, while not nearly as accessible as desirable, can be used.  The new version looked to me not to be accessible enough to use.  I won't go into Avast more now.  I will if people are interested.  You can still get old versions.

ClanWin does indeed run under (to quote from their website
http://www.clamwin.com ): "Microsoft Windows 10 / 8 / 7 / Vista / XP / Me /
2000 / 98 and Windows Server 2012, 2008 and 2003".

However (also quoting from their website): "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."

This in my opinion makes it rather less useful than many other anti-virus
scanners, however if your choice is limited to whatever will still run under
XP, then maybe it's a good enough compromise.
