I guess it comes down to taking the initiative to do "something". If you don't have ANY virus-protection, at least get something on the machine quickly. Any protection is better than none. It will also give you time to research.Usually it is a combination of AV Software on the machine, good firewall rules, Spam / Malware detection and general Internet Use principles that will help keep you safe.
