    Normally, it should go down when the processes which uses it stops and exit.

    However, sometimes it may get too large for comfort and you should login as root and view whats under /tmp.

    Most likely, its the session files which is consuming space, you may safely delete all files beginning with sess*

    Are these folders under /tmp?

    If they are and you have uninstalled CLAMAV, then it is safe to delete them.
