I like rkhunter for rootkit checking, and there's clamav for virus scanning.

Download the rkhunter-1.3.8.tar.gz from http://sourceforge.net/projects/rkhunter/files/rkhunter/1.3.8/

Decompress the tar.gz and run the resulting install.sh script (a folder or two will be extracted as well).

Once installed, run: rkhunter -h
...to see the usage.

If you have become infected with a virus or a rootkit... the safest precaution is to format the drive and re-install. Along the path try to discover how your system was compromised and close that security hole so it can not happen again. If you are at high risk of being a target of rootkits or other hacks, then you should already know how valuable it is to have regular and comprehensive backups of any important datafiles that you may have on your computer.
