clamav is a FILE scanner, it's very different on the way Windows
antivirus works, being 'always on' and being able to catch virus 'on the
fly' as files are accessed. Clamav *DO NOT* work that way.
That being said, if the virus/rootkit/malware signature is present
on clamav database, yes it will detect that file, but it will *NEVER*
(it doesn't work that way) prevent you from accessing and even running them.
