In general each pc should have a good quality virus protection software such as Eset Node32, Ave, Avast, or Kaspersky. Also you should limit the amount of exposure to a possible infection by turning the computer off when its not in use. First and foremost good browsing habits (no porn,illegal file sharing), as well as a secure network that is using all of the wireless security features, and firewall options supported. Is there a specific infection your cerned about.
