  1. Hi, if you have a PC running windows and U have a virus, would it be more effective to boot the computer useing a LIVE usb With linux then execute clamav from linux to scan the computer for the virus?
    Clamav is designed for E-mail, but if u opened an E-mail and got a virus, will clamav work to get rid of the virus, as I mention above? Or can you recommend another program to do that? Thanks for your reply.
