    Clam has a very MAJOR problem. It doesn't scan inside of folders. for instance, it will scan the directory "Music", but if you got your music from Google Play, each album is inside a folder. It will NOT scan the album folders. it will show "0 files scanned". Clam is actually a terrible product, to be honest.

    Not so good, as it doesn't defend against 75% of all viruses.

    It's ok, I guess. It caught some trojans trying sneak onto my laptop. It'll do while I still do my homework on antimalware software.
