Almost every time I open my laptop (XP Professional v2002, Service
Pack 2), which brings it back from suspend or hibernate (during which
time my wireless connection has turned off), Clamwin sees that it's
about time to check for a new version and/or download the daily virus
updates. However, it tries this immediately, and always always always
pops up an error about network connectivity, because it takes an extra
three or four seconds for the network connection to be re-established.
I realize this is a minor error, but still it's a constant annoyance
to have to dismiss the popup.

My suggestions:

  • Make an option for "if network is unavailable, don't complain"

and/or

  • Make an option for "if network is unavailable, try again in
    [X] seconds, and if that doesn't work, then try again [Y] times,
    where Y can even be zero.
