I was searching through previous posts and found https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Antivirus
Some of the options listed I've heard of but aren't maintained it seems. Some I've just never heard of before. Some I've heard of but don't seem to install properly. Some I've heard of but don't actually remove the infection.
What seems to be the best Anti virus option for Ubuntu?
I haven't ever heard of Avira Antivirus. Opinions?
I did select Firestarter as a firewall. Decent?
Clam AV is the one i use, they have a GUI you will have to install seperate

The best option when it comes to protecting your Linux based computer from viruses is to simply: run Linux. The only viruses that currently exist for Linux are proof of concept. In order for a virus to infect Linux, you would have to deliberately install it. Something that you just wouldn't do. Don't worry about viruses when you run Linux. They do not apply.
