Why when clam av is installed by default, and if you are going to use
propriety anti-virus software at least pick one that works!

In all seriousness the installation of AV software to a LINUX system is
generally considered overkill, however to prevent me from forwarding an
infected email to a Windows user I do have clam set to scan all incoming

The chances of getting a virus that will kill the (Ubuntu) system are
virtually zero if the user is sensible (only installing software from
trusted repositories, not entering random commands found online as root,
i.e. anything that starts with sudo).

In short my recommendation is to forget about McAfee. and get your dist
upgrade done. I have no idea how to avoid the problem whilst maintaining
McAfee on the system! I'm sure someone else here can help.
