I think the most important part is AdWare and Spyware removal programs, and making sure you pay attention to whatever you're downloading of course.

I'd just download Microsoft Security Essentials. It's free, it's from Microsoft, and it's well reviewed.
I had heard good things about MSE but about a week after getting it on my old computer I got the Win 7 virus and was unable to get rid of it after going about 2 years without any problems running the free Nortan.

I know no Anti Virus will solve all problems. But after losing my previous computers Window's to a virus I figure 50 bucks a year is not that bad.
