    No, you don't want to install an anti-virus. There's no way that any programs can run on your phone without them coming directly from Microsoft.

    If you have a problem that leads you to think you have a virus, you'll need to tell us the symptoms as it'll be caused by something else.

    Sounds like you've enabled the screen magnifier options in settings->ease of access.

    Read further here.

    If you don't need the screen magnifier, turn it off.

    No.

    Although it's possible to copy files that contain viruses onto a memory card, there's no way that code or script can execute on a phone. The only code that can execute on the phone is apps obtained through the official Windows Phone Store or updates sent directly from Microsoft.
