1. There's not really such a thing as a "standalone" pop-up killer. The ones on Windows are simply Pop up killers for Internet Explorer, because IE doesn't have one.

2. Anti-Virus software isn't really needed. Search the forums for info.

3. Linux comes with a great firewall called IPTABLES.

Note: The virus programs you see (Amavis, for example) are for use in mail servers; to catch viruses on the way to windows clients.
