ClamAV Killing RedHat 4.8?

So help me out here. For some reason I install the antivirus, ClamAV, onto a RedHat 4.8 box (yes it has to be that release of the OS to work with my other software needs) and after the install and giving the permissions to another user/group dedicated to this AV I get a ton of errors. After the install a few things pop up after a restart/logout. When trying to log back in the Gnome environment crashes so you cannot access any acct aside from using the text based environment. Two other error windows appear as well, one mentioning Bonobo has died and the other saying that Nautilus cannot be started due to Bonobo. I'm not too familiar with Bonobo can anyone fill me in on why those errors occured?

Talking about errors doesn't solve things. Posting exact error messages might help. So please be as verbose as possible describing exactly what you did and what errors get displayed.

archerofthemoon , did you fallow the install instructions ?
did you add a new user called " clamav"
did you add the users to the new group you made called " clamav" ???
did you remove the " # " from the two files " freshclam.conf " and " clamd.conf "

if you did NOT edit those two files the first time you run " freshclam" you WILL get a error
that TELLS you to do that .
