This has been addresses many times, in a number of different threads. Ther are a lot of options, and reading up at sites that specialize in reviews will give you the plus and minus for each.

Bottom line - pick one you like, paid or free - MSE, IObit, MalWareBytes, AVG, Norton, Symantec (if you have a penchant for pain), ESAT, etc., etc., etc.

I use a combination of MS Security Essentials and PC Tools Threatfire. Between the two have caught every drive by I came across. They also work nicely together.
