What makes you think its not there? Please open a terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T), run type clamtk and add the output to your question. Also tell us exactly how you searched for it. –  terdon May 14 '14 at 12:42
it opens up clamtk, but if I go look for it under applications, its not there. will I be able only to open it via terminal? –  Nissi Office May 14 '14 at 12:50
What? What "opens up" clamtk? Did you run the command I gave you? The command was type clamtk, not "type clamtk" :). Did it give a result? I ask again, how are you searching for it? You need to explain what you're doing for us to be able to help you. We have access to neither your computer nor your head and so can only know what you tell us. Perhaps an illustrative screenshot? You can upload it to imgur.com` and provide a link in the body of your question. Did you actually try typing clam or virus or whatever into the dashboard? –  terdon May 14 '14 at 12:54
Sorry about that, I misunderstood you, I did run now "type clamtk" and it gives me this: clamtk is /usr/bin/clamtk. Sorry, what I meant in my first question is that I searched for clam in dashboard bu typing clam or clamav or clamtk, it did appear and worked before I updated the gui. Thank you –  Nissi Office May 14 '14 at 13:12
Sorry, I can't reproduce it. clamtk is installed, I see no reason why it would not appear in the dash (by the way, there is also no reason for you to have it in the first place, not unless you are talking about a server that provides services to windows machines but that's a different question). Have you restarted? Does this persist after a restart? –  terdon May 14 '14 at 13:23
