There should be an antivirus software that just concentrates on bitcoin viruses & trojans etc...also it could be a central repository for reporting stolen coins

I don't think so... There are no need for any special software to protect bitcoin (people have to use their brain instead). All the possible products concentrated on bitcoin viruses & trojans looks like scam on first sight...

People are working on an easy way for amateurs to secure their wallets. That's what we need, and I suspect will be released very soon.
Pretty much the same as your suggestion, just a different product

Version 0.4 will allow for wallet encryption, and standard anti-virus will protect against any viruses, there is no need for a specialized anti-virus program just for Bitcoins.

also it could be a central repository for reporting stolen coins

so then what would happen?  would they backtrace your bitcoins and have the cyberpolice be on their way?

the consequences would never be the same!
