for redhat there should have the up2date application install during your os installation and you can use that for upgarde your OS

For Antivirus, have a check here http://www.f-prot.com/products/home_use/linux/.

tar is like archieve utility, like in windows we have Winzip.
.gz files are compressed files.
to open up these files.
#gunzip fp-linux-ws.tar.gz
#tar fp-linux-ws.tar

this will extract all the files needed to install.
#cd fp-linux-ws
and read the README file to how to install.

shivsa gave you the answer about tar and gz

to untar the tar.gz file

just run "tar zxvf fp-linux-ws.tar.gz" which will create a directory fp-linux-ws for you, after you untar it get into the fp-linux-ws directory, there will have README &/or INSTALL file(s) which you can know about the installation procedure.

Hope this can help
