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.

LView Pro 2006, the all-time classic graphics editor, is now released as FREEWARE! It works on vanilla Windows ME/98/95.

I started using Lview back in like 1994 when I first started using computers, on Windows 3.1.

does anyone have a windows 98SE machine to test a specific application. it is performancetest v9. i wanted to know if it would install and work with the original kernelex 4.5.2. only version 6.0 build 1013 works officially, but if v9 can work, then you can upload your cpu passmark ( specifically single thread passmark score as well i believe ) to the cpubenchmark site, although, i believe it only will show up / pop up in the archived old version list, but at least it still will show on site. 

i used version 3.5 on windows 2000 earlier, and it listed the passmark of the computer as 210.1, however, it doesn't appear to have a specific cpu passmark, or at least, if someone is more familiar with this program, maybe there is a specific entry that would indicate it, that in other words might have been called something else in the older versions? it also measured at 662.3 megaflops for the machine, which used a regular hard drive at 5400 or 7200 rpm, 768 MB ram, 64 MB integrated intel gpu, and celeron 2.4 Ghz mobile processor with 128 KB of cache.

the reason why i was using version 3.5 of the program is because it works on as old as windows 95 and it's lightweight, at less than 1 MB, where as the v9 version is about 50 MB.

@cov3rt

v9 requires SSE2, i can't run it.

With v8 i got score 241 in WinXP on my system (AthlonXP 3000+, 3GB DDR, ATI Radeon HD 2600 Pro AGP  (512 MB))

I don't have a working video driver on my Win98SE, so won't be able to test it there.

You can extract the v8 installer and run the test without installing.
