[clamav-users] Disable MaxFileSize and MaxFileSize to scan the whole system

Can you guys please tell me the right way to disable MaxFileSize?
In my clamd.conf I'm using
MaxScanSize 100000M
MaxFileSize 100000M
Would placing a # in front of the parameters make it scan any file not
depending on its size?
What about using
MaxScanSize 0
MaxFileSize 0
or even deleting the parameters?
I would like to scan every file in my system since I believe there are
some big files with viruses (buffer overflows).
Would "sudo clamscan -r --remove=yes /" be the right command for
scanning the whole system?
