Antivirus in Linux Mint: ClamAV and ClamTK, the GUI


We are told it is unlikely that an antivirus will be needed in Linux, but coming to it from Windows as I have, I feel rather naked without some kind of antivirus in any computer's operating system. I've had too many bad experiences with malware in Windows to be comfortable "going commando" here. And yes, on its first scan, it did find one item to report. It was a leftover from a removed Opera browser. This result above is the second scan, to confirm the system is in fact clean.
