ClamWin Free Antivirus
Possible cause for empty reports or crashes when scanning or updating virus database
We receive many bug reports about strange behavior by ClamWin (like empty reports and crashes when scanning or updating virus database). This behaviour can be caused by an incorrect COMSPEC environment variable value.

Check what is your COMSPEC environment variable set to. To do that open command prompt and type:
set COMSPEC

on Windows 98/Me it should be:
ComSpec=C:\Windows\command.com

on Windows 2000:
ComSpec=C:\WINNT\system32\cmd.exe

on Windows XP/2003:
ComSpec=C:\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.exe
you can correct the COMSPEC environment variable in System control panel applet, Advanced-Environment Variables.
