Microsoft Security Essentials seems to be well spoken of.

the "search forum" springs to mind - use it and it will help you this question gets asked every time and users are lazy.

If using W7 or Vista then use MSE and windows own firewall

If using XP then you need a decent firewall like Zonealarm free

Avast is another good alternative to MSE, back it up with Malwarebytes free and your well protected.
