comment Does clamav scan on real time (always alert)?
I don't believe ClamAV is a real-time detection system, I believe it's only on-scan detection. (Don't quote me on that though)

This won't solve their problem, @Techieman75, 'cause this would remove Win10 and the corresponding files/programs/etc.

comment About mx4 ubuntu edition
Try and keep questions to one question. As well, this is a very broad question, especially with point #3. Such broad questions are not good fits typically with the site...

comment Possible security issue? (syslog connect messages)
named will always spam you; I disable most of the logging accordingly to reduce the disk space usage by syslog. So will SMTP (and I do a similar log reduction by reducing the logging level). If you're concerned about that one server, block it with the firewall system (block all traffic from source ip)

comment Possible security issue? (syslog connect messages)
... Your third set indicates a nameserver is being queried - that's not unusual to see requests that your nameserver doesn't serve. Many different things try and use any nameservers they can get to to make requests for such - the query there you see was denied, because someone at the IP made the request, but you reject queries for every other zone but the ones you serve to the public, so those messages on your third set are NOT unusual, someone's trying to use your nameserver to find that domain's data, and that won't work because you reject those lookups.

comment Possible security issue? (syslog connect messages)
You've got a couple sets of different log data here... so lets look at these one at a time. Your first set is SMTP conection attempts. That means something's attempting to test your server to see if they can send SMTP as them. There's a thousand such things that hit my mailserver, too. Your second set appears to be the same. ...

Not within the space allotted here. Go here and read the "Preparing for Installation" section, and the infoblurb about custom CAs.

Make sure you're not using a self-signed cert - it won't work. If you do use a cert you generate, you'll need to generate the certificate and create yourself as a CA, and then copy the CA cert to each computer and them sign the endpoint certs with the CA signing cert. It won't be trusted outside the computers you explicitly add the certs to though, for trusting them.

comment Is there a ip address for adsl modem?
NOTE: Revealing your MAC address isn't going to expose you to much more in terms of 'attack vector' on your LAN NIC. In any case, you already SEE the IP address there, under the WAN information. What more are you looking for?

comment VMware error and cause compiling problem
There is not enough information here. At what point is this an Ubuntu problem? What did VMware support say about this? (I also removed the link to their secure data site, since we don't have access) You also say there's a 'compile' problem - at what point does that come up, and are you trying to install the VMware tools?

comment Any chance to get my SD card work again?
Also check sudo fdisk -l to see if it recognizes the card as a disk drive too, because it could be a case of the device being damaged. (I/O error, damaged partition tables, etc. from a previously-working card could be a sign of internal irreparable damage to the card)

comment Ethernet-Connection ubuntu with VMware Player
Then the issue is a VMware one, and not an Ubuntu one, you should go to Super User and ask for help diagnosing VMware Virtual networking on a Windows 7 Host. VMware Player works Out Of The Box typically, if it's not, it's not an Ubuntu problem, and a bigger one outside the scope of this site.
