I always keep a copy of UBCD just in case, but have not kept up to date since version 4.x. Do Antivir definitions need updating to stay current? If so how do I go about such? I've also seen talk of Clamav but the program does not seem to be mentioned in the list on main UBCD web page.

Having had a nose around I see that Antivir is updatable from within interface, no doubt with a hard/wired connection. Unfortunately it'll hang at mounting system disk on my laptop & on my tower the display is a nauseating load of wiggly lines even when trying different res.

Clamav is part of Parted Magic but although I see an option to update Clamav's definitions in the start menu I cannot see a Clamav launcher?

So do I have to mount the image using special software then navigate to that directory?

Clamav is a command line application:
Code:
clamscan --help
