When I have to set up Windows PCs for work (rare - mostly dealing with Macs) a combination of Microsoft's tools (Windows Firewall, Windows Defender) and AVG antivirus seems to do the trick. Windows Defender for Spyware, Firewall for obvious reasons, and AVG for virus protection.

Avast has a good reputation as well, but I've never set it up.

ClamWin is also pretty good, but I'm not sure about its tools anymore in regards to just scanning your system v realtime protection of your computer. Worth looking at.

He should install exactly -one- malware program, and he needs to make sure that it's not something he bought at a store (which are nearly all crap).  Avast has a good rep and a good price.  I've also had excellent luck with Kaspersky Anti Virus.  It's a bit spendy but very comprehensive.
