    Posting the error you get might be handy.

    Screenshot perhaps?

    Sorry,.....It's not actually an error

    But when I went to the clamav website....I saw that I have the latest engine and yet in my PC clamtk shows a somewhat a blue icon with an 'i'....That's what I was actually trying to convey........

    Re: Clam update error

    The database files are located here,

    /var/lib/clamav/daily.cvd
    /var/lib/clamav/main.cvd

    So in theory you could load your downloaded definitions into their.

    I don't use any AV on my arch install so I do not have any experience with clam.

    What does,

    Code:
    freshclam -v
    do for you?

    You have also not given any details about your setup.

    WM? DE? Network Connections??????

    Makes it kind of hard to troubleshoot.


    EDIT|||||||||||||||

    Also,

    post the result of

    Code:
    pacman -Qi clamav

    A simple google search about the GUI update sourced the answer.

    http://clamtk.sourceforge.net/faq.html#outdated_gui

    The latest version is in the AUR.
