Truecrypt is both one of the most effective and the most cost effective (it's free open source). Read the documentation before you do anything else with it. For maximum security, you want the full disk encryption option.

Windows 7 Ultimate edition also has a full disk encryption feature if you're willing to upgrade from Starter.
