I guess rsync would be the candidate if anyone ever runs into a situation requiring defragmentation on linux. I would have never suspected simply rsyncing the / file system would work. But I recently reviewed a few articles discussing easy ways of converting your existing linux install to include LUKS. But of course, you need to take care of setting up the boot up after rsync, but it'd still be relatively painless way of defragging
I'm using antivirus on linux mint.Linux don't need it,but if you load file where are windows virus and sent it for someone who have windows,it cause there something.
Antivirus for mint you find it from packages,named Natilus calmscan and 2 part for it.You find it as search "antivirus".
Don't load and install programs from net,so you can get bad files,load only from packages using synaptic,or package manager.
On linux can be installed only when you allow it with password.
I hope for you nice times with linux mint.
