A NAT enabled router + Win 7 Firewall + Good Anti-Virus will take care of most people.
If you want to block/control outbound traffic you will a 3rd party firewall.
Some additional security tools might include Spyware Blaster and Spybot Search & Destroy which provide some passive protection protocols.
