:?: Hi, I'm using UBCD v5.0.2 and am currently in the Parted Magic application trying to run Clam AV antivirus tool on one of my files, but I'm getting the following error message:

I also tried this command at the run command prompt, it didn't work.l couldn't download ClamaAV definitions, got an error. I'm new to all this so could someone please help me out, tell me what I'm doing wrong, and what's the best way to accomplish this task. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
