ClamWin Portable v0.103.2

Andrew Lee on 5 May 2021

ClamAV is a virus and spyware scanner whose database is constantly maintained by a group of volunteers and updates are always available for free. Note that the program does not contain an on-access real-time scanner; you must manually scan a file in order to detect malware.

ClamWin Portable is a portable wrapper for ClamWin and can be modified to automatically update virus database periodically or during startup.

Long overdue update, IYAM -- it took tree years for ClamWin to be updated from v0.99.4.

Please note that, for updating purposes, you needn't download the full 100MB+ ClamWin package.

Just go to, find the latest version folder and download the clamwin-0.9x.x-setup-nodb.exe, which is only about 8MB -- after (Uni)extracting, you'll find all the files you need for updating in the '{app}\bin' folder...

If anyone here wants to take over maintanence of ClamWinPortableDBUpdate, please send me a message. I no longer use Windows and so no longer maintain it.

I just clicked the link 'ClamWinPortableDBUpdate', and it had nothing to do with updates...more like a meat market that refuses to let you leave...

If you're running ClamWin portable and want to use 'freshclam.exe' to update via CLI, it won't work unless you place the following lines into (a newly created text file alongside the exe named) 'freshclam.conf':

DatabaseDirectory ..\db
UpdateLogFile ..\log\ClamUpdateLog.txt
LogVerbose yes
NotifyClamd .\ClamWin.conf
Foreground yes

Add real-time malware scanning capabilities to ClamWin Portable by also using Clam Sentinel.

@ Danix: Thanks ... and updated.

If you wish to report it as an alternative, is available also a X-ClamWin winPenPack version here Thank you! ;)

Does it still have that atrocious UI? I know it's free and all but that is what has been keeping me from using it - besides the scan speeds. That was back in '06, they had more than enough time to make a few improvements.
