Are ESET NOD32 and Spybot S&D any good? That's all I got at the moment.

Forgot to mention the excellent "Shields up" site, you can do a port test and various other security tests here.
Scroll down the page to the "shields up" section.

Spybot is good just keep it updated as with all programs of that type, can't comment on ESET NOD32 as I've not used it but it won CNET editors award so it must be pretty good
