You have to, clamd.conf and freshclam.conf both are installed disabled by the

That explains everything, as I said above, a new clamd installation is left
disabled until you configure it... it's not only the "Example" line, you have to
choose between UNIX socket or TCP socket in clamd.conf, at least.
