I recommend MicroSoft Security Essentials.

Remember to only install one antivirus!

4-a) [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
5) [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] (Uncheck during installation "Install Comodo SafeSurf..", Make Comodo my default search provider" and "Make Comodo Search my homepage" if you choose this one)
6) [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

It is strongly recommended that you run only one antivirus program at a time. Having more than one antivirus program active in memory uses additional resources and can result in program conflicts and false virus alerts. If you choose to install more than one antivirus program on your computer, then only one of them should be active in memory at a time.

and why is setting a restore point important? .
Because malware is often hidden in System Restore. Everytime you do a System Restore you infect your computer again.
