Anyone have any answers to this question of mine? Whether or not "freshclam.exe --daemon-notify" works to reload clamd with new sig
files, such as the latest .NDB files from http://www.sanesecurity.com/clamav ? I don't see anything in the clamd logfile when I run
freshclam with the --daemon-notify parameter, so I'm not sure if this works (I'm also running clamd via the Power Tools service).
