Exclamation Mail stopped working; 100% CPU on clamAV, and can't login to the control panel

As in title.

Mail stops working randomly, and I logged in to see what's happening, to see that clamav is running and is running 4-5 processes all of which are taking ALL available CPU power. I restarted the box, and killed the processes in attempt of a quick fix, but no success.

I tried to log into the control panel by going to


but when I enter my password and username it throws me back to the same page as I would see while logging in, but with this in the URL:


mySQL etc are up and running, I have restarted ispconfig, but the problem persists. What could it be?

Any help appreciated!

Edit: Upon killing the clam processes started by one user, more popped up started by other users. Is this some sort of routine maintenance? However it shouldn't be taking 100% CPU AND messing with our ability to log into the control panel right?

EDIT2: I've found this in syslog:

1) Please cfange your server configuration to use clamd:


2) Repair the session table in the ispconfig database with e.g. phpmyadmin.
