[clamav-users] Removing Tool for ClamXav

Sorry if I wasn't clear before.

There is no need for a removal tool any more. The instructions you referenced from Colorado are out-of-date.

Just quit ClamXav Sentry (if you use it) and make sure it's not set to launch at log in. Then simply drag ClamXav.app to the trash; after a few seconds you'll see a message asking if you would also like to uninstall the scanning engine. The uninstaller will remove the scanning engine and any schedules you've got set up.

That being said, I don't understand your statement that it takes up too much space. That isn't an issue I've heard from any other user. The Application itself takes up only 27MB and the scan engine another 200MB. Could something else be using more space than that?
