I use my Linux Mint VM for most of my internet activity. Because of this I like to install an antivirus on that VM so that I can scan files before I transfer them to the Windows host.

I use ClamAV:
“Clam AntiVirus (ClamAV) is a free software, cross-platform and open-source antivirus software toolkit able to detect many types of malicious software, including viruses.”
