Hi guys i was just wondering if there is any antivirus protection software for the hp mini 1120nr mi edition, or do i even need to worry about it? Ive been to some sketchy sites and wanted to make sure that my system is safe. Is there some kinda of scan i can do?

Also was wondering if there are any tweeks i can do to make the operating system run a lil faster, and if there are going to be any new updates to the empty package manager content. Wish there were more programs :( If u are using the mini mi OS let me know what u think about the topic thx.

Howdy,

If it runs Linux, then relax and enjoy it.

Hallo.
As Herman said, mostly you don't have to worry about security too much. The reason for a virus scanner, as far as I can tell, is to scan data that will go on to a windows machine.

There is info on the subject here
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Security

As far as speed and updates go, can't help, sorry.
