    most malicious software now days uses some form of social engineering. keeping that in mind is generally the best defense

    If you want a free antivirus I'd advise you Avira AntiVir or Microsoft Essentials plus a anti-spyware software like Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware. But if you want to pay choose Kaspersky, G-Data or a solution from ESET. These are DA best on the market nowdays. I'm personnaly using Nod32 but I've tried G-Data and it's a very good antivirus too. I've also heard that Dr.Web CureIt! wasn't bad. Last but not least, you're the best antivirus.

    Free: Avira, Avast, AVG. Can't go wrong with any of them.

    As a computer repair shop owner and tech, we use and recommend Kaspersky. NOD32 by Eset is good, Avira is good, AVG is OK. Stay away from the big 3: Norton, McAfee or TrendMicro - they seem to spend a lot more on marketing than they do on R&D.

    You'll be fine with Windows 7. Tehmagik made a great point, it's mainly social engineering now that will get you. I've owned 4 computers with Windows 7 and Vista and I've never got a virus. Just be smart and you'll be fine.
