When installing, ClamXav creates a clamav group and a clamav user,  
visible under NetInfo Manager and used (according to the doc) for  
retrieving updates. Is that what you mean?

According to the FAQ, there were problems with previous versions of  
ClamXav, in that these user and group were not created completely  
during the install, with the consequence that the Reset Password  
utility on the OS X disks could no longer be used, leaving you in the  
void should you forget your password.
