    For the antivirus software, this is purely down to personal preference. As of yet in my years of using Linux, I haven't ever found one on my system.

    But, a popular one is ClamAnti-Virus.

    A Firewall is a must, especially if you have a cable or broadband modem. Linux comes with it's own firewall software called iptables or you could use ipchains, but there are many GUI based firewall programs out there.
