I just got a Kindle Fire. Do I need to download an anti-virus or spyware program to it?

No antivirus/spyware program is necessary.

The only anti anything you need is antibowtie.

Ed - Where can I get antibowtie? It sounds like an awsome program.

Only you can make that decision. If you're storing missile launch codes on your Fire, then yes. If you're a reasonably alert user who selects apps with care, checks for SSL/TLS on connections to banking sites, etc. then probably not. But it's up to you to assess the risks and your ability to deal with them.
