    Mny cookies are not harmful, but some can be used to track your browing habits or used by ad servers. The way you look for cookies depends on the browser you use. For Firefox go to Edit -> Preferences -> Privacy -> Show Cookies. As for viruses, they don't really affect Linux systems, but there are applications such as clamav and avg for Linux, that check for Windows viruses in case you run a mailserver or share files with Windows machines.
