I have installed Comodo Antivirus in Ubuntu 12.04. Now it had installed, but after running it it shows to run a script.
Please help me to install Comodo Antivirus (or suggest any good Antivirus).

First, you really don't need an antivirus for Ubuntu unless you're planning on dealing with windows files and/or systems.
You can download Comodo Antivirus from their website, and choose your architecture 32bit or 64bit. Once downloaded, just press Ctrl+Alt+T on your keyboard to open Terminal. When it opens, navigate to where the file was downloaded (probably the Downloads folder), and run the command(s) below:
sudo dpkg -i <file_name>.deb
I would recommend ClamAV. To install run in terminal
sudo apt-get install clamav sudo freshclam sudo clamscan

Install Comodo Antivirus For Linux 1.1 X86-64 On Ubuntu 12.10 - Desktop X86-64:
.deb file from: "http://download.comodo.com/cavmgl/download/installs/1000/standalone/cav-linux_1.1.268025-1_amd64.deb".
Double click the
.deb file to open it the Ubuntu Software Center, then click "Install".
In terminal type:
In Ubuntu 12.04 the command to run the script begins with "sudo" because you have to run the script with administration privileges.
The command you type out in the terminal is:
Then enter your password. Then just keep clicking "enter" to scroll down and see the "more" of the EULA, until you get to where it tells you Comodo has been successfully installed and the terminal prompts you for a fresh command for something else. Now close the terminal and you are done.
It worked for me.
1- Download below
2- Use below command to install
sudo dpkg --install libssl0.9.8_0.9.8o-7ubuntu3.2.14.04.1_amd64.deb
4- Use below command to set up
sudo dpkg --install cav-linux_x64.deb
5- Run the below script
6 - You will find a shortcut on disktop for the app.
To iterate, for the Comodo anti virus libssl issue, open as root, /etc/apt/sources.list, then entry/install this secure ubuntu repository, deb http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu trusty-security main universe; Try sudo gedit to open the sources.list file as, root.
Generic sources.list entry,
## COMODO CAV-LINUX REPOSITORY deb http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu trusty-security main universe;
Then, sudo apt update,
and, sudo apt-get install libssl0.9.8.
Retry, gdebi cav-linux_x64.deb, for ubuntu o/s.
