I have similar problems with clamav myself.

What I did that improved a little bit
was deleting the virus database in /var/lib/clamav/*
and running freshclam again.

Still is very slow. If you try clamscan -debug you will
find out why it is so damn slow....

Clamd works fast on the other hand.
Maybe it should be included officialy (clamdscan)
in MailScanner's the next version.
