Linux doesn't really need anti-virus since you can't be infected by something dangerous if you're not running progs as root. If you're searching for a good Win anti-virus, Norton is a good one I think.

While not running programs as root will minimize the damage, a user can still wipe out all of their own data if they are infected with a virus/worm/trojan.
