It is not widely known, but in Vista Windows Defender has anti malware in it doing real time detection. I have in the past had malware not be detected by my primary AV solution and then to have Defender pick it up. Its not fool proof obviously but Vistas defender is pretty good I think. This is one of the reasons I dont use onecare - I want to "spread out the coverage" to another av source that isnt MS.

Windows Defender is not standard on XP but I recommend its installation on the systems I work on.

 

I wish that its update would be as quick as other anti virus applications:
