if you didn't know, you don't REALLY need antivirus - linux has just a couple of dozens of known viruses (windows ~ tens of thousands...) and it's really hard to get infected(to "install" them) by those...
Antivirus program shouldn't be on your priority applications list - i don't have it and don't plan on installing it...

Post Works very well, good docs, not hard to install. Mine is a RPM. It is command line though. Just type in f-prot /* and off it goes. Won't delete it, just tells you where it is and what it is.

Hope that helps.
