[clamav-users] Unclear how to proceed after Windows install

I installed clamav-0.98.6-win32.msi on Windows. It added nothing to the 
Start menu. After searching the registry I found clamav executables in 
C:\Program Files\Sourcefire Inc\ClamAV, but they are all command-line 

Your manual clamdoc.pdf is relevant only to Linux.

I have used Clam-Tk on Linux and it works well -- easy to install, easy 
to use. I'm surprised at this baffling Windows version of the program.

Even with access to the clamd.conf man page on Linux (not provided in 
Windows) I could not figure out how to fix the "Please define server 
type (local and/or TCP)" error. The conf file options require specialist 
knowledge that few Windows end users would have.

Do I have the wrong package? Or, is the Windows version of ClamAV just a 
bare-bones toolkit for technical specialists?
