I am using Debian squeeze. I want to enable on access scanning and scanning of downloaded files and all options which are employed by a proprietary virus scanner for Windows on Linux. I am using Debain 6. How to do it?

I am given clamfs dazuko (clamuko) avfs as options. But I can't find the steps to enable it.

dazukofs is no longer maintained, only works for pre 2.6.38 kernel IIRC – warl0ck Mar 3 '13 at 10:57
What is the exact problem you wish to solve by enabling a malware scanner on a Linux system? – schaiba Mar 3 '13 at 17:27
The closest to an antivirus is ClamAV, but that one is more geared towards integration as a scanner of email. It can also be used stand-alone to check files. – vonbrand Mar 4 '13 at 20:22
