    What Anti Virus protection do you want ? ClamAV is a multi purpose one. I use it on my email server to scan emails before they get delivered. But you could use it also in an email client, I believe that latest KMail has CLamAV support. See their homepage http://www.clamav.net/ There is a FC package on that site. Be sure to check some frontends as well. But I do not use a virus scanner on my desktop, because I do not need one . I once had a legal copy of some virusscanner but never found a virus on my machine for years.

    A firewall is included with the kernel and a userland program called iptables. There are many scripts and frontends for that, FC might have the solution already installed, but I don't know FC. But if you do a search on iptables google and this forum search will give you a lot of useable links .

    I downloaded firestarter based on a few good recommendations here. I've got a lot to learn about firewalls, but firestarter looks to be good and easy to set up. I think sourceforge has links for it.

    Choose the Third party software link on their site and read what's available. There are several GUI's available, you probably want something in the category Graphic User Interface+ClamAV

    IPTables Script with default drop using stateful inspection.

    Antivirus: Generally either ClamAV or none
