Is there any way to make Clamwin take less time and not chew up my CPU

I use Clam Sentinel (at http://clamsentinel.sourceforge.net/ ) and set it to scan only files that are newly written to disk. Then manually set ClamWin off to do a whole disk scan when I know I am going to be away from the machine for a long time.

[The same difficulty with Clam happens on my Linux box. If only there were something similar to adopt!]

And how do I do that?

Alas, my Win98 boxes are in storage at the moment, so I am relying on memory, which may be fallible.

I am assuming that you have ClamWin already installed and that it is running full disk scans automatically somehow. So that will need to be cancelled. For cancelling within the program, see the configuration screen here: http://www.clamwin.com/content/view/23/55/ and follow the link to Scheduled Scans. If it is being fired up externally (for example by Windows task scheduler) then see here https://duckduckgo.com/?q=how+to+schedule+clamwin how some folks recommend doing it, and reverse any actions that may have been applied in your case.

For Clam Sentinel go to http://clamsentinel.sourceforge.net/ to download your choice of installer or non-installer as you wish. There are two user guide linked at the bottom of that page.

I hope that helps.

Nobody has updated the main list for over a decade, so here's my importing of softwares:

There is a lot more to be added for the sake of preservation. I still need to color-code, fix alphabetical order, and import a lot of software.

@galahs seems to be missing since 2012.

If you're up for the task, maybe ask @dencorso to insert your post in the begining, so you can update it freely.
