I loaded up Chrome today and it tells me there is a sync error and I have to sign in again. I type my email and password 5 times and it just keeps saying there's a sync error. However gmail, google+, and youtube says I'm signed in. Then I tried to load Capsized game from Steam. The program window pops up for a few seconds then closes. Steam will not close now because it says I have Capsized still running. I opened System Monitor and closed the Capsized process, but Steam persists in saying it can not close until Capsized is closed.
I decided to run a clamav to check. I ran
Apparently it needs to be updated, which I thought freshclam was supposed to do. I read all over http://www.clamav.net and search the forums on the web. They all say just run that command. "OKAY, so I guess it's as updated as it's supposed to be then."

So where are these infected files? I can not find documentation telling me where to find them. 'clamscan --help' doesn't help me. I tried 'man clamscan' which just tells you that you could get an infected result, but not what or how to handle it. Even the site does not say what to do if you actually get a virus. I could use the remove flag, but I don't want to delete things if they are not actually viruses. How do I know what files are infected? How can I tell if they are false positives?
