The only way a Mac can spread a virus from a Windows system is through an email attachment that is infected that you forward to a Windows system. So don't do that. And while I understand your concerns, your money (and time) is better spent getting AV for the Windows machine and NOT putting it on your own. If, in fact, you feel you must have and AV, then get ClamXav and only run it when you insert a USB stick. If it has malware on it, let the person who gave it to you know so THEIR machine can be checked. Your Mac will never get a Windows virus.
