    OK I'll start with the basics, Microsoft Security Essentials, Avast, or Avira for your anti-virus.

    Virus, Spyware & Malware Protection | Microsoft Security Essentials

    MalwareBytes Anti-Malware for malicious software.

    Malwarebytes : Free anti-malware, anti-virus and spyware removal download

    QFX for anti keyloggers

    QFX Software - Anti-Keylogging Software and More

    If you use Firefox there are a lot of add-ons that can do more as well.

    Dont forget programs like win patrol and secunia. They are not anti virus or anti malware, technically, but they are awesome supplements. One will tell you when security is out of date. The WinPatrol will notifiy you if something unauthorized is making changes to your computer. Its awesome
