not sure if im in the right section but im missing the clamxav icon in the upper right status bar. im use to it being there on my old g4 with tiger, it always let me know that it was working. ive searched and cant find any information explaining why it would be there for lion. figured out what i didnt do. i needed to launch clamxav sentry, put a check mark by it.

Have you got the latest version of ClamXav? The latest is version 2.2.2 and is compatible with Lion. Here's the download LINK.

thats the one i have. if i go to clamxav preferences and under sentry check the box where it says launch clamxav sentry when you log into this computer, then it will show up in the status bar, until i shutdown my computer. then when i turn my computer back on the icon may or may not be there.

Sounds like a bug in the program. Go ahead and report it on their web site as they're usually pretty good about publishing updates. Since it's Open Source it may take awhile though.
