It's *highly* unlikely that you have a virus. Although there are some
viruses for linux, in general, unless your a corporation running a
server, you dont really need to worry about them at this point in time.
Most Linux security threats are fixed within hours (alright, that might
be a slight exaggeration), so as long as your updated, theres not much
to worry about.
If the screen is freezing up, you either have a problem with your
xorg.conf or something with your hardware is faulty.
What video card are you using?
