Multiple Sentry Icons in Menubar

Postby alvarnell » Tue 23 Jan 2018 4:31 am

If you are seeing more than one Sentry Icon in your Menubar, that indicates you have multiple copies of Sentry running and you should definitely only have one. Click on each icon and Quit them. The icons should disappear. Then start the latest version of ClamXAV on your computer, go to the ClamXAV menu and choose "Preferences".

No need to change any settings, just click the "OK" button and that should sort it. Then go into System Preferences -> Users & Groups -> Login Items, and remove all instances of ClamXAV Sentry you see listed there.

It's also an indication that you have multiple copies of ClamXAV somewhere on your drive. That's not really a problem as long as you only use the latest version which should be in your Applications directory (folder). If you are able to locate any older versions then you should trash them, but ignore any offer to remove the scan engine that pop up.
