    Should I turn on Clams AV with NAV 2007installed? Is Clams a good replacement for NAV 2007, good as a paid for AV?
    Thanks

    Last time I tried Clam AV for Win it was extremely slow at scanning, and it didn't seem too good at detection from what I heard. So I'd say if you already have NAV then there's no point in even looking at Clam.

    It's purpose is to scan email at the gateway. In most host based tests, Clam scores low.

    Clam isn't good enough yet to replace anything.
