And if you don't want to pay, try AVG free edition:

http://free.grisoft.com/freeweb.php/doc/2/

Highlights include:

    * Automatic update functionality
    * The AVG Resident Shield, which provides real-time protection as files are opened and programs are run
    * The AVG E-mail Scanner, which protects your e-mail
    * The AVG On-Demand Scanner, which allows the user to perform scheduled and manual tests
    * Free Virus Database Updates for the lifetime of the product
    * AVG Virus Vault for safe handling of infected files

This is excellent. Don't be put off by the FREE tag.
