Strange Exim Restart errors

noticed when we restart Exim we get the following results:
service exim restart

Shutting down clamd: [FAILED]
Shutting down exim: [  OK  ]
Shutting down antirelayd: [  OK  ]
Shutting down spamd: [  OK  ]
Starting clamd: ERROR: Can't parse the config file /etc/clamav.conf
Starting exim-26: [  OK  ]
Starting exim: [  OK  ]
Starting exim-smtps: [  OK  ]
Starting antirelayd: [  OK  ]
Starting spamd: [  OK  ]
now Exim start fine and all works with no problems, but I don't understand the issues with ClamAv, we've never used it, or installed it as far as I know.

The /etc/clamav.conf file empty. Why is it looking for clamav to shutdown and parsing the conf file ?? It's just an annoying problem that I'd just like to remove :) What can be safely removed so it doesn't do this anymore ??
