I've tried that lots of times Tobi, however, it still doesn't create
it:

chris at localhost:~$ sudo service clamav-daemon stop  [ - ]  clamav-
daemon

chris at localhost:~$ sudo service clamav-daemon start [ + ]  clamav-
daemon

The 'clamd.socket' file should be between these two but it's not:

-rw-r--r--  1 clamav clamav    446464 Jun 23 11:40 bytecode.cld
-rw-r--r--  1 clamav clamav        82 Jul 13 14:44 crdfam.clamav.hdb
