I'm always suprised how much people are afraid of viruses and shit on their PC's. I guess the difference is that it takes a little diligence vs none...
It is incredibly easy to secure your pc with free software that has a very small footprint, I've been using avast! lately as the Norton that comes free from my cable company seems to be constantly locked up/broken.
If you keep your data in order, reinstalling windows7 from a thumb drive is a snap too. I tend to do a window wipe every 6-10 months whether I need it or not. Nothing like a clean registry and naked partition full of fresh installs.
I haven't used any type of anti virus program for as long as I can remember and never got a virus on my PC. The key is to use programs that aren't as bloated with all that crap that most name brand programs are usually associated with.
