    I know of no free Anti-virus programs for linux, which is hardly needed anyway, since almost no viruses are written for linux. The only linux viruses I know of are worms, and the best way to remedy them are to fix the bugs which let them into your system, or by running a firewall.
    The decompressors gunzip and bunzip2 always come with linux distros. Are you looking for anything else?

    I think he is looking for a GUI based compressor/decompressor program. Try file-roller for GNOME2, I am a big fan of that. Cool stuff
