Please read common answered question about antivirus or similar on linux:

No, it is a Windows AV. Not only do you not need AV in Ubuntu unless you are running a fileserver with Windows clients or an email server, but Norton Internet Security is for Windows, Not Linux.

I suggest you read this:
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Antivirus
