Thanks to everyone that has replied may it have been about IE not sure 
where that came from but anyway.

As I see now I don't really need a AV for linux stand alone system BUT is 
it not the responsibility of everyone to make sure that they don't pass a 
virus onto family, friends and other users alike. I do use a windows 
software from the ATO that is Etax, So I would like to make sure that I 
have no worms trojens or other unwanted.

I'm still very new to linux and ubuntu but so glad I have made the change 
from dark side. Wish I had done this many many years ago!!
I do like someone's option of "Windows in a virtual environment 
(VirtuaBox for instance)" Would like to learn and hear more about this. 
Any help would be appreciated
