      ClamXAV does not let you scan the entire startup disk, since Apple
      includes a symbolic link to that disk on that disk. When the scan
      reaches the link it begins to scan the disk again, recursively. With
      Clam, you can effectively scan the entire startup disk by selecting
      every visible item on the disk, in the Select dialog. VirusBarrierX
      might have the same issue.
