Well without 3rd-party software, Windows (and all its viruses) can't even read the OS X partition, although the more viscious ones could format it I suppose. Just get anti-virus software for Windows and make sure it stays updated.

You may even want to get some AV software for OS X just so you can scan the Windows partition for viruses from a "safe" location. The reason I suggest this is that no AV software is bullet-proof... some viruses deliberately attack and disable AV software before that software may have been updated to recognize it. The AV software in OS X, being essentially immune since Windows viruses can't even see it to begin with, may still catch stuff your Windows AV is missing.
