They look, lol.

And i won't know the password, they create a profile with it on. Someone i know (left now) had the password, he brought his laptop in and aircracked his way in. Shows how secure our school network is. lol.

ClamAV is more about checking files to make sure there are no windows viruses in it so the poor sucker you pass it on to doesn't get owned.
ClamAV is definatly recommended. I use it as a filter on my download box. I download "things" though my Linux box, scan it, then transfer the clean file to my network, then grab it with my Vista box.
