Try these two commands to re-initialise the ClamAV "stuff":

       rm -f /var/lib/clamav/*.cvd /var/lib/clamav/mirrors.dat
       freshclam -v
       /etc/init.d/clamav-daemon force-reload

(Note the space in the first line - it deletes the .cvd files, and the mirrors.dat file, which the second command will re-download.)

If the "freshclam -v" command kicks up errors, contact support.
