What is the difference between ClamAV, Immunet, and ClamWin?
ClamAV is available for Windows with the same scanning and detection capabilities available when using ClamAV on macOS and Linux, with exception to the On-Access Scanning feature (Linux).
Immunet is a real-time fully featured desktop AV solution. It contains cloud based detection technologies and the enterprise grade ClamAV detection engine. The product is produced and maintained by Cisco which owns both ClamAV and Immunet.
ClamWin is a free application that provides a graphical front-end for ClamAV, similar to ClamTk. ClamWin is maintained by ClamWin Pty Ltd., and has no association with ClamAV, Cisco, or the Immunet product. Additionally, ClamWin does not contain an on-access real-time scanner, and can only be used to manually scan files.

What is the difference between ClamAV, Immunet, and ClamWin?
I was at spiceworks the other day and IT user highly praised the combo of clamav+immunet (fwiw??) I tried immunet several months ago, and ended up uninstalling it but don't recall why or that it was "bad" -- I think I disliked the interface. I have not used clamav in many years, but the spiceworks_guy raved how good it was without the bloat...
