Check the archives.  The solution has been posted several times.

The only thing which needs to be fixed is your MailScanner.conf file.

You can re-enable the .cvd download by editing freshclam.conf and  
setting ScriptedUpdates to no.

Hopefully at some point the Clam Module / MailScanner will work  
better with ScriptedUpdates, but that quick fix with freshclam.conf  
works well in the interim :)
