Clamd is already running. Use clamdscan to scan files / directories.

Just I had been to the link, they say that ClamAV can not disinfect files.
Any more suggestions for disinfecting my pc from "Funny UST Scandal.avi.exe"

You really want to look inside, don't you! :-)

You need to find a scanner that can disinfect if you want to open the file (DANGER!). It may not be possible, depending upon the virus.

Having a file with a virus attached does not mean your system is infected. Do you have reason to believe your system has some Linux-specific virus? If not, just delete the file.
