  • Debian:

    dpkg --remove clamav*

  • Redhat/Fedora:

    yum remove clamav*

  • Mandriva:

    urpme clamav

  • Gentoo:

    emerge -C clamav

Make sure that you haven’t got old libraries ( lying around your filesystem. You can verify it using:

Also make sure there is really only one version of ClamAV installed on your system:

`$ whereis freshclam`

`$ whereis clamscan`
