Double ClamXav Icon In Launchpad

Postby Radar1968 » Wed 22 Aug 2018 9:00 am

Hi Again(!)

I notice after upgrading v2 to v3 that there re now 2 icons for ClamXav in the Launchpad.

Both work and point to v3. Is there any way to remove the duplicate? I can't find any way at present myself.

Kind Regards

It sounds like you probably have a copy of V2 somewhere on you computer. When you installed V3 it should have removed it as long as it was in your Applications folder, but it it was elsewhere then it would not have been able to. You'll need to find it and move it to the Trash.

Next check each of the icons for the one that allows you to Quit Sentry and do that.

Lastly, open System Preferences->Users->Login Items tab and highlight ClamXav Sentry. Then use the "-" button at the bottom to remove it.

Thanks for the reply.

No v2 installed anywhere and Sentry is v3 with the new icon.
My applications folder only has one ClamXav in it and both the Launchpad icons launch v3.
Its like v3 was installed over v2 but the v2 icon in Launchpad has been left behind but launches v3.

Small update which seems to have fixed it.
There wasn't a copy of v2 installed anywhere but in login items there was a dead link to the old sentry so I pressed '-' and removed it.
I then rebooted and the second ClamXav in Launchpad has disappeared.

Hope this helps if anyone is experiencing this issue.
