@tom: It appears you have ClamAV configured to filter using "clamd" -- the ClamAV daemon (service) which hosts the ClamAV filtering logic. In this configuration, the ClamAV daemon must be running -- please make sure the "ClamD" (ClamWin Free Antivirus Service) service is running. If it isn't listed among Windows services, please try installing it using "clamd --install".

You can find more about the ClamAV setup process in our guide at
