    I think you mean Clam AV.
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install clamav
    if you want a GUI then
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install clamtk

    I got this output:
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    clamav is already the newest version.
    The following packages were automatically installed and are no longer required:
    linux-headers-3.5.0-23-generic linux-headers-3.5.0-23
    Use 'apt-get autoremove' to remove them.
    0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.

    But when I typed clamav i don't see in my system?

    its because it is a commad line tool.
    You may want to install the frontend for clamav (dont know the exact name, do a quick google for clamav, or look it up in the ubuntu wiki its there as well)

    ok, the name of the frontend is clamtk. you can install it with
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install clamtk

    Klamav hasn't been in the repositories for a long time, I'm assuming it's no longer being developed or supported. For those wondering, klamav was a KDE frontend for ClamAV.

    Either:

    1. Move your mouse to the top of the screen and select "Advanced", or;
    2. Press the Alt key once and begin typing "Preferences" or "Scheduler".
