[K12OSN] *AntiVirus Solution*

I have Clam installed in a couple of non-LTSP environments and it works just fine.  The 
thing to do is have it run on your mail server so that it scans ALL mail before it gets 
to the clients.  That way you don't have to worry about having a cross platform solution 
or whether every client has the latest version, etc.  Kinda the LTSP approach, where the 
work is done at the server not the client.
