[clamav-users] Priority problem

I'm using clamav under Linux. I've scheduled a daily scan of my home 
dir. I would like to know if there's a way of telling clamscan to run 
more nicely ; actually when clamscan runs, it takes between 75 and 90% 
of my CPU ! I would rather think of an antivirus as a silent, 
background, quiet process. I tried "nice" and "renice" but clamscan 
doesn't seem to take account of that.

Friendly yours
