I agree with Carla about Macaffee.

Personally, when I use Windows, I use AVG, combined w/ Windows Defender. Arguably more important than the virus software is the spyware software, though. I use AdAware for that, and I've also heard good things about SpyBot. If you have to run Windows, I'd use all of those.
