First, welcome aboard.
Second...please write and spell clearly. It's almost impossible to understand what you're asking.
If you're asking "How do I load Linux on my PC", put the CD/DVD in the drive, boot from it, and follow the instructions. Does Linux have viruses? Not in the same sense Windows does, but there are vulnerabilities, but they're dealt with much more quickly than Windows, and (unless you run as root all the time), cause little damage.
