Might I suggest ClamAV? http://www.clamav.com
ClamAV, while being open source, seems to have an incredibly fast
response time to new virii. I've seen new virii caught by Clam 8-10
hours before the "big" vendors catch them.
I understand the need to have a vendor supported product, but having
clamav in the mix helps tremendously...
And there's a windows version as well (albeit, by another developer)
