Does clamwin remove viruses?

Specs: Windows XP
I think my computer was recently infected with a virus, so I downloaded clamwin and ran it. It detected several infected files, and now, my question is: does clamwin remove viruses? I've also just downloaded avast! and will be running that as well. Could anyone also suggest any great free anti-virus/removers?

ClamWin is NOT the worst AV ever, but it does not monitor in "real time". In other words, it is not running in the background & guarding your system from infection. It only works if / when the user runs it.

There are plenty of decent freebies available & everyone has their favorite. Have a look at AVAST!, AVG Free, Microsoft Security Essentials. Plenty of choices available at FileHippo:
