If you need to install Anti virus for Ubuntu you can download ClamAv and for Firewall you can use Guard Dog.
Both are available through Synaptic.
Linux is virtually virus free so you can definitely do without anti virus as such if your usage permits it.

Thank you for your help. I guess I am so used to Wndows that I can't get the thought in my head that AV is not required. I have now downloaded both thank for your assitance.......Normael

This thread was started before the other link that you provided.
