Have you met the Ubuntu Guide?

After you do that, forget about the clamav you downloaded. Just type these commands into the console:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install clamav


You can also use System > Administration > Synaptic Package Manager to do it graphically (the "Reload" button is the equivalent of the sudo apt-get install command; marking for installation and then clicking "Apply" is the equivalent of sudo apt-get install clamav).

Did you also install the mplayerplug-in for Mozilla? You need it along with Mplayer and the codecs to view multimedia in Firefox/Mozilla.
