Have you tried  menu/all and see if it appears there.  Otherwise try command line? clamscan

@limey-lee  Clamav is a terminal only program, If you want a gui you need to install clamtk.

Quote
Database updates can also be downloaded automatically.

For manual use: install the package clamav.

For automated use: install the package clamav-daemon.

Both methods will also install the updater clamav-freshclam.

If one wants a GUI, then install the package clamtk.

Taken from: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ClamAV

Just tested myself :
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install clamav clamav-daemon clamtk
Menu item appears in Accessories which starts a simple gui to configure etc.

@Jerry maybe with window users expecting a gui this should be added to the helpfile for linux lite :)

@DeepThought clamtk was deliberately left out because the interface is buggy and slow to react to some actions.

@Jerry  Thanks for the info, personally I don't use it but was just a thought for others who want/need a gui :)

Thanks very much for your info DeepThought . I'm wondering now if all the types of Clam can be installed or which one would be suitable to scan a separate drive other than
the operating drive . E.g  usb connected drive . I've been away from Linux for a while so trying to get familiar again lol .
