You should not need antivirus for Ubuntu since programs or malware made for Windows wont run in Ubuntu you couldnt even install an antivirus or any file with the .exe extention.
If you want to install an antivirus for ubuntu look in the Ubuntu Software Center (Ubuntu app store) and look for clamav
actually most of the stuff you need to install in Ubuntu it should be from its Software center if you find any difficulties installing applications from there start another thread with specific questions.
Good luck to you.
