Subject description: is there a menu entry or what is the command?
 

I'm trying to help a friend whose windows machine has picked up an ugly bit of malware so I downloaded the clamav version in the ppm for Racy 5.2.2 . (This is the first time I've seen Racy - very snazzy, btw) I've looked and I don't see a menu entry for clamav, does it require running from the command line? If so, would one of you tell me the command for running it, please.

thanks so much

Open a terminal window. Make sure you have mounted whatever partition you want to scan (perhaps you want to scan /mnt/home, which would already be mounted in your frugal install)

Then:

http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=415919#415919

In the above case (scanning /mnt/home/):

Code:
clamscan -irl  /tmp/clamav.log /mnt/home/


This will write a log file in /tmp/ (which will be cleared on reboot -- but gives you time to look at, and rescue the file if you want).
