Jeremy,

Just to clarify, are you saying AlwaysUp can be used for more configurations
but is not needed to run clamd as a service?
Kindest regards,

Jeff Lamb

Yes, that's exactly correct! Just run it once with that switch and it
installs a regular Windows Service (which you can view with 
all the other services via the Services icon in Control Panel ->
Administrative Tools).

I've also successfully run clamd as a service using AlwaysUp
(http://www.coretechnologies.com/products/AlwaysUp/) - it's an 
inexpensive, commercial program for running applications as services - it
gives you a lot more control and functionality over 
PowerTools or similar Windows Service tools.
