Indeed. I find the solution at:

I have the same /usr/lib/systemd/system/clamd.service file as you.

This log was I get before solve the clamav problem.

I did check these 500 lines and don't find anything sensitive, like
passwords. Only find the lines bellow and don't know whether are these
lines all right:

Well, my motherboard is Asus P5N-E SLI.

I observe that that I can't use my DVD writer; it can't read neither
any CD nor DVD.
I must to disassemble this DVD writer and assemble my old IDE CD
writer to can reach the broken system when had kernel panic.
