Hi Shawn,

Thank you for your reply. I already posted the question on that forum, but no one knew the answer so they directed me to the ClamAV community. :)
I will try some other communities. :)

Hey Mark,

I would guess that the problem lies in whatever script or process is calling freshclam. Nothing in ClamAV spits out those kinds of errors.
Please refer to the documentation of the software package you're using that integrates with ClamAV.
