    A good start is to go to the major AV sites and read what they have to say:

    Symantec
    NAI (Network Associates)
    Trend Micro
    Panda
    Kaspersky

    They have tutorials on viruses and you can look at the analyses in their virus libraries to see how they work in practice.

    I wouldn`t suggest you download any virus source codes until you know what to do with them, in fact to strictly answer your question: No you don`t need to know all about viruses to be safe from them, just the same as you don`t need to know all about cars to drive one. If however you are interested in learning about viruses then check out the sites listed by nihil, that would be a good start.
