Paula you can install Avast! Antivirus 5.0 which is very good. The Home edition is free to use.
You can also use the AntiVir free antivirus. Again the Personal edition is free.

In addition to these you should also install Malwarebyte's Antimalware free edition and from time to time have it manually scan your computer.

You can find more freeware security applications here : http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic3616.html
